Martha's perseverance and effort have served her well, so she can continue staying in control of her house through her separation from her husband. She confronted this great challenge by opening a store in which she offers bread, which has brought her successful results for her household finances. Thanks to the good location of her store, her portfolio of customers has increased, and she hopes to increase her working capital to attend to each one of the orders of her neighbors and friends.
