Since then, that has been her family’s most important source of income and she dedicates herself to it tirelessly day after day.

Jesusa keeps in mind all the time that that the money is necessary in order for her children to continue studying. Her big dream is to increase the size of the store and to stock it with a greater number products in order make more profit.

Jesusa es muy constante y trabajadora, hace ya más de 15 años que ella tomó la decisión de proporcionarse sus propias fuentes de ingreso, y lo hizo a través de una bodega que instaló en su propia casa. Desde entonces esa es la fuente de ingreso más importante para su familia, dedicándose a ello día tras día, sin descanso. Jesusa tiene en mente todo el tiempo que es necesario ese dinero para que sus hijos continúen estudiando. Su gran sueño es agrandar su tienda, surtirla con más productos y así obtener mayores ganancias.
