At night she also sells regional food. She starts to prepare at 5 in the afternoon and offers her diners patarahsca, grilled chicken, smoked sausage, tacacho, juanes, etc. She has been doing this work for 12 years and works alone. What she likes about her work is that it gives her enough space to have two incomes in the household and cooking has always been her passion.
