She farms her own land in the area where she produces different varieties of potatoes, especially colored and floury potatoes. She also cultivates “ollucos” (an Andean tuber). “Since I was able to save enough from farming, I also started another business selling cattle,” she says. Every Thursday and Sunday, she sacrifices two heads of sheep and sells the meat at markets in her district.
