Gabriela Martinez's story

Gabriela is 54 and lives with her family in her own house. She has a stand where she sells staples, bread, beans, rice, milk, eggs, and sausages. She has run the business for several years, and she has garnered valuable experience that lets her earn better profits. The stand is located in a busy area and has many customers.
