Another group member is Maribel del Socorro, 26. She is a single mother of three minor children. She is a fruit and vegetable merchant in the market. She started her business with her own capital and with help from her mother who cared for her children. Today, what most affects her is the high transportation costs both to move her and to move her merchandise.
