Petrona has been a craftworker since she was a small girl and supports her husband in the care of her home and her two small children. With her ability of needlework she makes table cloths, napkins, cushions, bedspreads, and other merchandise that she sells around the village of Zinacantan or in the city of San Cristóbal in the market of craftswork. She also has a small stand by the edge of the international road where the tourists buy their products. She belongs to the group of the Market 2, where she hopes to wait for a loan to buy the fabric and string for her handcraft.
