Altagracia is in her late twenties, and she and her husband have five school-going children. Her husband is a mechanic and he has his own shop. Altagracia, the entrepreneur, lives in Chácaro, in the community of Yamasá.

Altagracia dedicates herself to the selling of an assortment of natural and silk flowers. She started this business six months ago with a loan she obtained from FSMA. The natural flowers Altagracia offers to the customers are carefully picked from healthy bushes of Santo Domingo, the capital.
