When asked whether she would like to work in Marinaleda after finishing her degree, she answers hestitantly. But Garcia is ambitious and would like a full-time job in product control.

Although large franchises are not allowed to establish branches in the village, the mayor says he doesn't want to stand in the way of entrepreneurship - "as long as their businesses do not become too large". He doesn't explain what "too large" might look like and says he cannot recall how many business licences he has granted in the past couple of years, although he says everyone who applied for one got it.
