As people of the sea, seafood is favored by many people. Ana is one of many people that fish for a living. Her husband helps her out with the hard part of the work, which is getting the sea urchins and fish. The seafood is sold on the roadside to people going to and from town to the rural areas. Sometimes it is bought by people going back to their country of residence. If her sales are good for the day, she earns one hundred and twenty tala. That is then used to pay for family needs and wants and most importantly to update her payments with SPBD.
