Maria Natividad's story

Maria is 47 years old, in a common-law relationship, and has three children. She lives in the city of Cusco, Peru. Maria sells grilled meats as a street vendor. She has an improvised stand at the corner of the busiest street in her neighborhood. Maria is taking this opportunity to buy supplies such as meat, potatoes, sausages, and other items. She has already spent several years making sweaters and has done very well.
