Mariana Concepcion's story

Mariana, 24, started out 5 years ago with her small store, and thanks to God it has gone very well. She has been gradually growing her small store.

She works alone from 6am until 9:30 at night. Her only difficulty is the climate, because in the rainy season her neighborhood gets flooded. She is married and has 3 children aged 8, 5 and 3.

Mariana has a lot of aspirations for her business, and so she wants to buy drinks, cooking oil, canned goods, etc. Her goal is to provide her children with a complete education, and to finish the construction on her house.
