Iveth, 30, has a small store in the front part of her house. She lives in a neighborhood called "Duran," on the outskirts of the city where the natural ecology is fast disappearing.
To help with the family expenses, she started to buy groceries to sell to her neighbors, but she had to spend her savings on canned goods so that she could have a better income. She works with the help of her daughter from 6am until 10pm.
To continue with her business, since her house is made of cane and in need of repair, she needs to buy drinks, canned goods and rice so that she can increase her income. In the future she wants to expand her business with more merchandise.
