Maribel Del Socorro's story

Maribel del Socorro is 30 years old, with a life partner and five school-age children. She lives in Chongo, which is named after a species of pig from this area. Maribel is a young entrepreneur who has finished primary school. Since she was young she has killed pigs. From this experience she has had a desire to start her own business. Her life partner is a farmer. One of their dreams is to have a larger business that offers a variety of local products. Currently their business involves killing pigs and selling pork products such as fried pork meat and pork nacatamales. All of the products that she sells come from the meat that she raises. Thanks to the young person’s initiative from Chinandega, Maribel has the opportunity to meet her goals and have a means to earn a living. In this way she can provide food and education for her young children.
