Maria Eloisa's story

Maria, 48, has a restaurant where she works alone every day from 6 am until 10 pm. It has gone well for her and now she also sells food retail. The only problem is that their sector is very dangerous and her fear is crime. She is a single mother and works to move ahead with her two daughters, 12 and 10, studying in public school. Her goal is to finish building her house and to decorate her dining room to improve care and comfort of her customers.
