Miriam Estela's story

Miriam Estela G. Vda. D. V., 38, is a very hard working woman who struggles daily to support her family composed of her mother and two children who are 10 and 8 years of age; her 12-year-old nephew also lives with her. All the children are students and 100% dependent on Miriam.

She has a small store in her home which is in Soyapango. She sells shoes, purses, wallets, cosmetics, blouses, gift items and other products. In order to earn higher income, Miriam sells these products as an itinerant merchant in various towns and settlements while her mother tends to the home-based store; this way they work together for the good of the family.

Miriam is asking for funds to buy sandals, blouses and cosmetics because these are the products that sell best both at home and in the outlying areas; she also wants to buy products that she currently doesn’t stock in order to proviD. better service.
