She sells all kinds of basic staples as well as foods like beef tripe stew, tortillas, enchiladas, soft drinks and bagged water. Gladis is a hard-working, enterprising woman who wishes to get ahead. She sells just about everything and through her work has been able to provide for her children and their education.
