Morelia's story

Morelia is 37 years old. She is a mother to two children aged nine and five years old. She is currently working as a teacher but her salary isn't enough to cover her household costs. For this reason, she has started her own business selling everyday food items.

She will open it in the afternoons when she finishes her shift at the school. She comments that the new income will substancially improve her daughters' quality of life. She hopes to continue working as a teacher as this is her great passion. She hopes to be able to turn her venture into a source of employment for more vulnerable people in her area.
