She is a fighter woman who does not allow herself to be defeated and seeks to help her husband with household expenses and despite the difficulties they are achieving this. Thanks to the loans that allow her to improve her life, she works in the sale of seafood. She goes out to the town delivering prawns, squid, shrimp, and other seafood in restaurants and homes where they buy her products, since she sells a good product at the right weight and price.
