She has a business selling fast food, such as delicious “ceviches” (marinated seafood cocktails) and vegetable empanadas. Edita also prepares tasty ice cream in different flavors. She works every day. In the morning, she prepares all types of foods and then conducts her business in the afternoons away from her home.
