She is a retailer, having been engaged in buying and selling pigs for 10 years. Due to her family’s economic conditions, she has succeeded in completing third grade of primary school only. She started her activity with her own capital when se was 37, and little by little she has succeeded in buying more pigs to increase her production.

This is the first job she has had, and through this activity she earns a daily income, and she can count on established customers.
