María Eugenia's story

María is 49 and has a small grocery store, which she built through her own effort and sacrifice. She works every day from 7 am to 9 pm. At present she wants to resupply her store, with the goal of increasing her sales. This in turn will ensure that her children, aged 17 and 19, will have access to higher education. She is certain that with this investment she will be able to increase her income. She dreams of expanding her business and turning it into a source of employment for her community.
