Sra. Milka plants, harvests and sells her products (bananas, yuca, corn and others). She collaborates in the maintenance of her home, with the work of her husband. He is the one that is responsible for planting and taking care of the products when they are ready for sale and also brings the products to her so that Milka can take them and sell them to those who enjoy their products. With that kindness and hard working spirit she has also bought better seeds and rebuilt their humble home so that they may improve their lifestyle.
