For four years this enterprising woman has been selling food at a bus stop in the zone where she lives. At four every afternoon she takes her grill and starts selling pieces of chicken and beef heart. She cooks them on the grill at the bus stop. Time has allowed her to win various customers, mostly the workers of the bus lines at the stop. They eat her food because they know it tastes good and for the prices.

What she does not like about her work is that there is plenty of competition selling food in the area. Therefore, she needs to take great care in the good presentation and the prices of the grilled food. As she is a woman who always plans for the future, she plans to establish a restaurant where she would offer all types of dishes. This is the way she hopes to get ahead.
