She works in agriculture cultivating peas, corn and potatoes in her own fields. According to her, she has an average of two plots and sells retail at the market of Pampas city, where she goes once a week. On other days, she goes to the rain-forest, where she has banana plantations, and takes care of her son living there. However, given that she's an enterprising woman, she also breeds hens and sheep to sell them at a higher price, and sells candy at the town square to have an extra income for the house.
