Mrs. Marisol is 23 years old. She studied until third grade, because her parents could not support her in order for her to continue with her studies. Another reason was the distance where she was living, there were no schools in Carahota back then that offered higher levels.

Despite these difficulties, Mrs. Marisol always worked to help the rest of her brothers. She is currently married to Fabián, she has three children. They both work hard to give their children a better future so that they can study.

To have access to better economic opportunities, they always try to expand their plantations. This is why Mrs. Marisol needs money to buy banana seeds. In this way, the family will increase its income and will be able to meet some of their goals, like sending their children to the university some day and giving them the opportunity they could never have.
