Vidalina grows vegetables, tubers and leafy vegetables on her farmland. Since childhood farming has been the economic activity she was born into and grew up with. Now, she heads a family that continues with the same work. “According to how the work takes place, peas are my most profitable ones; we harvest and sell about every 3 or 4 months. Besides, the Rondo variety of pea is very sought-after and its price is advantageous for us,” she comments.

Often the human factor has been the main problem within her activity, an inconvenience she’s overcome hiring day workers that she pays daily. At the same time, Crisólogo contributes other income working as a mechanic in a shop installed at home.
