She sells appetizers for a living (such as enchiladas, cakes, yuca, and drinks among other products). She sells these in a school center of the city on foot. She has done this trade for many years and it was this way that she was able to provide schooling for her 4 children, 2 of whom went to the United States and provide her economic assistance. Today she no longer does this trade since her children went to the United states and left 2 grandchildren in her care.
