Maria has two businesses:the main one is selling food between 5 and 9 pm. She lives with her older siblings and works to cover her own expenses. She doesn’t have a family (husband and children)-she is single. Her second business is sewing. She has her own sewing machine and she works according to the season. For example, when classes start, she makes skirts for school uniforms. She has great hopes of having her own sewing shop in the future and to be able to employ assistants. She lives in a family house in Santiago in El Alto. She will use the money from the loan to buy fabric since school sessions will start and she will make the uniforms.
