She plants corn, raises hens and guinea pigs and makes them grow and fatten and then later sells them in different markets. She also makes a living selling cheese. She sells cheeses to different people. Through these small businesses she brings up her children. Her dream is to have a place of business where she can sell the hens and guinea pigs.
