When she needs to leave, her children help her and stay in the business. She says that, little by little, she has managed to better establish her store. At the beginning she only started with some food products, and now she offers her customers a greater variety. What she likes most about her work in interacting and talking with her customers. It is very entertaining. As an entrepreneurial woman, she plans to better stock her store. She also wants to improve her store’s facilities to make her purchasers more comfortable.
