María Magdalena is 41 years old and lives with her life partner and her children in their own home. She owns a bakery and sells French and sweet bread, "quesadillas" [flour or corn tortillas with cheese], "salpores", pastries, and cakes, among others. She is very known in the area because she makes the finest bread.

The good aroma that one can smell when the bread is fresh attracts many customers. She feels very pleased to see that people leave the place satisfied.
Everything she sells is of top quality and at an affordable price. Moreover, the service is excellent.

María is a visionary woman eager to achieve a brighter future. She thinks that a start will allow her to fight, and with a fight she will be able to achieve a victory. She is currently looking for this fight and she wants to expand her business but she needs capital.
