At 45-years-old, Isabel manages a very successful restaurant. She used to sell food to workers from a construction site in the center of the city. Every day she would prepare a lot of lunches and would take them to her customers where they worked. After the construction project was completed, just like the workers, Isabel was left without a job. Neverthesless, she had the idea to sell food at her home. This is a business that later on, after a lot of work, she turned into a restaurant where she has the help of two people. Numerous customers frequent it. Isabel feels very positive about her business and would like to open another location in a more central place. Along with her food business, Isabel would like to sell seasonal items like shoes, sandals, Christmas candies, etc.

A sus cuarenta y cinco años, Isabel maneja un restaurante muy próspero. Ella se dedicaba a vender comida a trabajadores de una obra de construcción en el centro de la ciudad. Todos los días preparaba una cantidad de almuerzos y los llevaba a sus clientes en el mismo lugar de trabajo. Una vez que el proyecto de construcción terminó, así como los obreros, Isabel también se quedó sin trabajo.

No obstante, le nació la idea de vender comida en su casa. Negocio que luego de mucho trabajo se convirtió en un restaurante donde cuenta con la ayuda de dos personas y con concurrencia de numerosos clientes. Isabel se siente muy positiva frente a su negocio y quisiera abrir un local más en otro lugar más céntrico.

Paralelo a su negocio de comidas, Isabel vende eventualmente y por temporadas, zapatos, sandalias, panteones, turrones, etc.
