Mariyanis has 7 children from 16 years old on down to 5 years old. Estefania, Mariyanis' oldest daughter (16 years old), depicted in this picture, "takes care of business" while her mother completes chores for the family.

Mariyanis is a full fledged businesswoman. She is farming some of the vegetables they sell in the store, right outside of the small shed where they sell the produce. She's had this business for two years now. Additionally, she has some rental property, which she keeps to supplement her income. It is not easy to care for 7 children, one right after the other in age! Mariyanis will use the loan to buy supplies for her store.
