This can be repaired by a stucco contractor, or in areas where stucco is not real common, by a plasterer. It is also easily be done yourself - there are lots of videos on Youtube and on home improvement shows like This Old House and Hometime and others on how to do small repairs, and you can buy premixed stucco for about $5-8/quart.

You just remove loose stucco and cut back any pieces sticking out from surface, then following instruction on the bucket about surface roughening and wetting (depending on what substrate you have) trowel on the stucco with a stroke pattern similar to the surrounding area (smooth, cross-hatch, knock-down, or whatever), leaving a 1/8" gap at window and door frames. Then when partly set stipple or brush with a dry wide paintbrush if appropriate to simulate the surrounding surface texture. Let dry, use paintable latex silicone caulk along window and door frames and around any other openings as needed, then after specified drying time, prime and 2-coat finish paint the patches.
