Edis María's story

Edis María is 54 years old and when she grew tired from the teasing she received from her work colleagues, she decided to retire and open her own business dedicated to billiards and entertainment as well as the sales of soft drinks and pastries. Thanks to her business her family can live a dignified life and be well fed.
