Escuinapa, Sinaloa (May 13, 2020).- In the middle of the economic crisis originated by the Covid-19 global pandemic, which has generated a considerable fall in the whole sector, the merchants of the Escuinapa municipality expect that the mango season will leave them good profits.

Francisco Aguilera Rojo, leader of the tenants of the municipal market “Miguel Hidalgo”, and who is one of the merchants most affected by the pandemic, recognized that the mango production season always brings economic flow to the community.
