Carina's business is selling joss sticks which she goes out to sell in the street markets. She works alone in the markets but is sometimes accompanied by her cousin. She works from 7.00am until she runs out of products to sell. One of the difficulties she faces is thieves because there are daily robberies in her neighborhood.
