Meanwhile, Carmen is not left behind. A short while ago she started raising guinea pigs. She takes care of them with great care and dedication. She now has 400, and she sells them to the customers who come to her house. It is somewhat tedious to keep watch over the animals. That is why she has collaborated with her son-in-law.
