She works in raising and fattening pigs, an undertaking she started many years ago, and in which she has much experience. She has benefited from 3 previous loans through Fundación Mujer, and these loans are the tools that have allowed her to consolidate her small business in order to pay for her basic family needs.

This will allow her to earn an extra income to improve the quality of life for her and her family, which is her ultimate dream.
