After that she got married and had 2 boys, having a happy family life. However, shortly after that, due to the oversea transfer of one of the main client factories, her company had to suffer by taking over their client’s debt. Because of this, her company was forced to sell their factory and their house. Also divorced by the disagreement.
At that time, she took all the responsibilities by taking over the president role following after 2 other presidencies in 2006.
