Teresa Virginia at home has a restaurant where they prepare and sell breakfasts, lunches and snacks, they prepare a variety of à la carte dishes and varied daily menus. They also implemented a hostel where tourists stay. They also raise and sell chickens, when they are big they sell them and also use them to make food in the restaurant. The social isolation at first had her without working due to the fear of contagion and various restrictions that prevented them from going to the restaurant, but she is currently complying with the bio-security protocols. This credit is to buy rice per quintal, a variety of meats, fruits, vegetables, disposable containers, etc. Her dream is to have a hotel-restaurant and her family is very healthy.
