I am a person with concerns and after working in different companies, I decided to create my own business in a sector that I was familiar with. Being a businesswoman allows me to reconcile work and family life because I own my own time.

I spotted this opportunity because it was a need that was not being addressed in the area where I live so I decided to cover it by creating two businesses. The secret to success is basically based on providing a service that is not being offered; offering services and products of first quality at a competitive price.

My role models are my mother and my grandmother who have taught me many things, including pursuing my dreams, being humble and believing in what I do.
