Genya works as a teacher at the local school, but her family mainly relies on income from farming. In her small farm she has three rotund piglets and twenty chickens. She mainly sells eggs from her house and from time to time also some poultry and pork. She also cultivates tomatoes and cucumbers, beans and onions.
