Maria Magdalena's story

Maria is 56 years old and lives alone in her own home as her children have moved out. She started her own shop a few years ago, with some savings and the business continued to grow with the profits the shop generated. Maria conducts her business in a very friendly way, as the majority of her customers are children who study at the nearby school. Maria's future dream is to increase her business and her income, as this will provide her with a better quality of life.
