When she stopped teaching she became a merchant full time but one day a television program caught her attention where they taught crafts, especially making pinatas. She learned and decided to start this business with different shapes, styles and sizes. She has had this business for 7 years. She distributes her merchandise in markets, by order and from her house. The use of different colors, characters and sizes are things that her customers look for, who are mainly children. For that reason, she needs raw materials to work. She requires crepe paper, cardboard, glue, clay pots, wire, craft foam, masks, plastic dolls, cord, silicon, etc.

One of her projects is to buy a sewing machine to make table cloths, curtains, pillows, and bedspreads to offer variety to her customers.
