Her eldest child is 20 years old and a sophomore at URACCAN (the University of the Regions of the Caribbean Coast of Nicaragua), and her 17-year-old is in the fifth year of secondary school. Her husband works as a technician in a fruit processing plant and spends his free time working at their family farm. They both share responsibility for household expenses and financial obligations.

She is highly motivated to get ahead, and her dream is to little by little improve her standard of living so that her family wants for nothing.
