She’s had a grocery store for two and a half years. She started selling assorted basic staple items at the age of 36. She worked abroad for a time and with much effort was able to save up some money that she invested in the business. Later, it gradually grew with help from loans acquired from financial institutions. They also can rely on other income because her husband’s relatives send them stipends. Her husband helps her with the business since she also does the household chores.
