She had a minimal knowledge of business as before this she worked s a housekeeper. She realized she wasn’t earning much as a housekeeper so she decided to open a food stand. Her sister helped her establish her business in the market in Estelí, as she had no other source of income. She would like the market to become familiar with her food.

This is how she will increase customer demand for her products. She would like to increase the products she offers in order to satisfy her customers and provide a better quality of life for her children.
