Maria Magdalena's story

Maria is 44, and a single mother with two children. She sells general merchandise, and has been working at her business for three years. She sells in the Condega municipality in Estelí department, where she and her family are from.

She feels good about the sales that her business has, since this a type of product that the town needs, and the need is not well-supplied.

Her expectation is to see her sales of merchandise grow, and to offer more and better products locally. In addition she doesn't lose hope of one day buying her own shop.
