She has a general store in her home, where she sells products such as rice, sugar, oil, detergent, bazaar-type products, clothing of all types, shoes, and paper goods, among other items. She works every day from 6:00 to 8:00, and sometimes later. While working in her business, she enjoys talking to friends and acquaintances who stop by her store each day. She buys the clothing and shoes in Guayaquil when she needs them. She has operated her business for 5 years already, and it has gone well for her.
