This has helped to provide her children with an education. She has also bred pigs and has a dairy cow, which she uses to make cheese. She also makes and sells tamales, atol (a beverage made from corn flour), and meals. She is a very enterprising person and her husband admires and appreciates the success she has had with her businesses.


She doesn't have any formal education, but she has succeeded thanks to her effort. She has also taken advantage of all of the opportunities that she has had.
