Doris is a member of the Communal Bank “Ccori Soncco”. She is 36 years old and the mother of two daughters (ages 16 and 10). Doris has been buying and selling tara, cochineal, and leather for 12 years. She learned this business from her parents. The items she acquires are sold to her brother who uses various machines to transform them into other derivative products. Her business encounters difficulty when the price for her products drops, which results in lower profits.
