She is in the business because of her parents, since she was a child, she helped her parents with small jobs, which gave her the necessary knowledge to plant cocoa.

With time, they acquired an additional plot with the aim of increasing their profits. Like all cocoa fields as soon as you start the cocoa production requires to have working capital to the subcontract workers. But due to the insufficient funds they chose to duplicate their hours of work in the maintenance work such as the removal of weeds, removing suckers, among others.

One of the complications that affect the normal performance of their work is the transport of the sacks with the dried beans of cocoa to the city and its final sale, since the access to the city is through a road somewhat neglected and the price for the service is something that affects the profits.

In the future, they would like to buy an additional plot land to get started in the production of barbasco, the name of several plants that contain poisonous chemical compounds that have been used for fishing by Indigenous populations of the Americas, because is a profitable product, which grows well thanks the optimal quality to the type of soil.
