La Villita De San Marcos Group's story

Marisol is 32 years old, married, and has three children who are in school. Roberto and Iván are in high school and José Gabriel is in elementary school. Marisol's husband is called Roberto and he works as a builder.

Marisol works selling tamales and grilled corn. She will invest her loan in buying the supplies that she uses to make her tamales and corn. She has not been working in her business for long but she says that she enjoys her work and hopes to make progress because, through her work, she helps her children with their school expenses. Marisol hopes to increase her business a little as she would like to buy a van from which to make her sales. She will be more comfortable because right now she is making her sales from a hand cart.
