This canton is known for its beautiful landscapes, for its forests, for the variety of its wildlife, and for its kind and hard-working people, of whom the majority work in agriculture and raising livestock.

In this place we met Señora Petita. She is 78 years old. She is married and from this relation has 13 children; four of them are deceased, and the others are adults. Two of them still live with her. Her husband is a businessman.

Señora Petita sells clothes. She has a shop in her house where she works every day from 8 am to 6 pm with the help of one of her daughters. Her merchandise is sent to her from New York or Santo Domingo and she receives it in Portovieho.
