Estela works hard to grow crops that proviD. the necessary products to support her family. Before the sun shines its first rays, she leaves her house and walks nearly an hour before arriving at her farmland where she grows carrots, potatoes, and peas.

She has been in this line of work for 40 years and considers the most difficult part to be transporting her products to Tarma because the sacks of produce are very heavy and greatly tire her. Over time she hopes to open a grocery store, which will help her improve her family’s financial situation.
