She supported her parents in their different business activities since she was a young girl. As the eldest sister, she took over the reins of the household and, some years ago, she opened a bakery where she started making bread. Over time, she also started making pies, cakes and other flour-based products. She is doing very well in her work and receives help from her mom and sisters. This allowed her to open another business (an Internet cafe). She started out with four machines and now has nine. Her plans are to further expand her businesses and invest in technology by purchasing new machines which will allow her to make good profits.
