“Worker” is the word that best defines Maria Julia. Her childhood was like that of many children in El Salvador – since she was 9 she, she worked selling fruit at the market with her father. Currently, she sells fried fruits, vegetables and sweets in the center of the San Ramón.
Sara’s day begins when most of us are still asleep – at 4am, when she heads to San Salvador’s central market where she purchases fruits and vegetables. Sara is a first year participant in our Women’s Economic Empowerment Project. With enough capital to buy a small quantity of produce, Sara normally just buys enough to last her through the day.
