The youngest child still depends on them, and his name is Jesus. Mrs. Margarita's husband is a dairy worker, yet he does not earn enough money to pay for his family's daily expenses. Because of this, Mrs. Margarita decided to begin selling mojarra which is a fish. She sells the fish on weekends (from Friday to Sunday) in her community and nearby communities as well. She wakes up at 5 am to buy fish in Temaxcal in order to sell them early enough in the day in her community. A loan from World Vision will allow Mrs. Margarita to invest in the future purchase of majarra, so that she can continuously bring in income for her family. She hopes that this loan helps her business prosper. She hopes to buy a refrigerator with the income to keep the fish cool. She can then sell them from her house.
