Nuria's story

Nuria is 34 years old and the mother of 4 children who all attend school. They are her greatest inspiration to succeed. Nuria lives with her husband Vincente, who supports her in all things, above all in her business. She sells regional produce such as tomatoes, cucumbers and many other types of vegetables from a small stand in the Bellavista market. She gets up very early, 2am, in order to go shopping at the port and take advantage of the variety of produce brought in from the countryside. After purchasing the vegetables, she brings them to the market to sell at 7am. She counts on a good quantity of customers who consume a lot of the regional produce. What she likes about her work is the selling and the good customer service. Nuria works to help with the household costs and the education of her children. Now, she would like to stock her stand with more products and grow her business, eventually setting up a small cafe/shop in her home.
