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.
(Translated by Alexis of San Roque High School)
En un inicio Ana Maria se dedicaba a tejer chompas y confeccionar joyas. Junto con un grupo de amigas trabajaban para una empresa, la cual se encargaba de exportar. Alrededor de diez años después, obtuvo un cargo importante en el comedor popular de su localidad, cargo que le impidió continuar con su trabajo en la empresa.
Una vez que abandono el cargo de la presidencia en el comedor se le ocurrió vender ropa por pedido y hace poco a implementado su negocio con la venta de cervezas. Gracias a su trabajo no solo cubre os gastos dela casa sino también la educación de su ultimo hijo.
