Rosario Esperanza's story

Rosario enjoys watching her two daughters grow. She is married and lives with her husband, her mother, and her daughters. In order to earn her own income, she opened a store in her house where she offers all types of household necessities. Rosario also sells tortillas, a trade that she learned from her mother. She has managed these businesses for a year and they have not presented any problems for her.

Rosario will buy corn, firewood, snack foods, beverages, salt, basic grains, bread, eggs, and oil. This will be a great help with restocking the inventory in her store and for selling tortillas. As a result, she can continue satisfying the needs of her customers and earning the necessary income for moving forward.

Her dream is to build a house of her own and provide her daughters with the opportunity to develop in a healthy environment.
