Gladys Haydee lives with her common-law husband, Sergio, and their children. She has a store where she sells staple goods, such as beans, rice, bread, milk, eggs, sugar, soaps, etc. For several years she has been in business and this has given her a good amount of sales experience which allows her to constantly earn more income.
