Reyna Aquilina is 40 years old and with much effort she has been able to advance her family. All of a sudden, she faced the necessity of paying for the family's expenses. She had learned about business at the age of 12 from her mother, who while alive carried out the same activity.
Independently, Reyna has 16 years doing this. As a single mother she had to find resources to maintain her children and her home. She hoped to quickly provide improvements in the home, so her children could live under proper conditions.
