Diana is a young mother of two children, an 11 year old boy and a 7 year old girl. A year and a half ago, in order to help her children with their school expenses, she talked to her husband about how to generate an extra income. This way, she decided to start selling candy. After some time, she also began selling beverages, such as sodas and water.

Little by little, her business began to grow, but she states that there’s still a lot to do. She currently re-invests all her earnings. In the future, she would like to build facilities outsider her house for her store, as currently her store is in the open air.

Diana es una madre joven de dos niños, uno tiene once años y la segunda, siete. Hace un año y medio, con el objetivo de ayudar a sus hijos con los gastos de sus estudios, hablo con su esposo sobre cómo podría generar ingresos extras al hogar. Es así que se anima a vender al inicio solo golosinas. Luego de un tiempo empezó a vender también bebidas como gaseosa y agua.

Poco a poco ha ido creciendo en su negocio, pero ella afirma que aún le queda mucho por hacer. Actualmente ella dedica sus ganancias a la reinversión. Más adelante le gustaría construir fuera de su casa un ambiente para su tienda ya que por ahora vende a la intemperie.
