She has a small grocery store called “Monarca” ["Monarch"], and Sunday nights she also sells pozole [a traditional soup], corundas [a type of tamales], tacos, etc. She has had her grocery business for 5 years, and she says that her children helped her set it up, so that they could support themselves and not have money worries. Every 8 days, Ema goes out to stock up on groceries in the town of Zitacuaro, since she says they give her good prices there, and in this way she can earn a little more.
