Her area is well known to have very good quality land where the main economic activities are cultivating avocados and making handicrafts using ocoshal leaves.

She comments that there are 2 harvest seasons for her avocado trees, and she gets good earnings from them. During the harvest times her children help her to cut the fruit and take it out to sell buy the bucket to the wholesalers in a town near her area. She has been doing this work for more than 4 years, and she comments that when it is not harvest season she also works selling handicrafts made from ocoshal leaves in Mexico City.
