Maria Mercedes's story

María lives in the canton of Libertad. She is 30 years old. She is married and has two children. She made the decision to look for work in order to continue her children's education and because how no one was giving her the opportunity to work for a company. She decided to raise money in order to open her business of selling cosmetics. Presently, her business grew little by little until the point of having a customer base. Maria works alone in her store daily. Her dream is to expand her cosmetics sales and have a store in the future.
