Francisca, age 61, lives in Yalaguina in the Estelí municipality. She is a merchant, and she has a grocery store. She has three children who are independent adults.

The money used to start the business was thanks to the sale of two cows that her father bequeathed her. Little by little she bought products, and her clientele was growing. With this business she supported her household and paid for the education of her three children. Fixed customers visit the store daily. They are young baseball players because her business is close to one of the baseball stadiums.
