She sells rings, buckles, bracelets, chains and stationery items such as notebooks, pencils, correcting fluid, erasers and other items to students and teachers from a school located close to her home.

Petrona proves to be an enterprising and responsible person. She says that everything she does is for the benefit of her children because they are her greatest strength. She also helps her partner with the household expenses. She wants to give her children the best of everything, everything she never had.
