Ana María
Ana María is the mother of four children. Three of them have now formed their own families. Unfortunately, her husband died seven years ago. Since then she has been responsible for providing for her family.

At first, Ana Maria made a living knitting sweaters and making jewelry. She worked with a group of friends for a company that exported their products. About ten years after, she was given an important job at a popular restaurant in her neighborhood. She had to quit her job working for the company.

Once she left her job as the president of the restaurant, it occurred to her to start selling clothing and a little while ago she also started to sell beer. Thanks to her new activities she is not only able to cover all the costs of her home, she is also able to pay for the education of her youngest child.
