This woman has been a merchant for 6 years in the Chinandega market. Her activity is selling fresh and dried fish, shrimp, oysters, etc. She is a woman who works hard to get ahead Monday through Saturday from five in the morning until four in the afternoon. Her two children depend on her; they are in secondary school.
