She fights for the future of her children so that they have better living conditions than those she had. Her three oldest children now have their own families. The last two are good students in the local school they attend. (Zoila is in the middle of the group with the pink blouse) Her business which she does with determination every day is growing corn. It has turned out to be a good business for producing economic income. She has been doing this for 20 years. She likes to watch the corn grow and come harvest time she does this labor with her husband and they make a good profit.

She has become an example for the community where she lives. So a group of women have decided to joined together with her to undertake the business of selling corn so that they also have adequate living conditions. The reason for this loan is to buy fertilizer so that this harvest turns out better than the previous ones. Zoila's dream is together with her husband to set up a warehouse to sell corn in her community to better serve the people who need this primary product, corn.
