She is the mother of a one-year-old son. For two years her work has been raising pigs. This has been her first business, which her parents taught her, since they did the same work.

Her goal is to be able to have a reproductive pig farm and to improve the conditions for raising her animals,. She wants to save to gradually repair her house, little by little.
