Orlando is 28 years old, and has been married for more than nine years. Both spouses have education through secondary school, with two dependent children. They live in the village of Colomi, the south zone, on Gualberto Villarroel Avenue in his parents house. Orlando and his wife are very enterprising and hardworking. They work tailoring regularly during the year. They sew pants, underwear, suits, repairs, and other things. They need money to buy fabric and raw materials for sewing. For them it is urgent because they have orders to sew pants and other garments. With the savings that they had, they bought an industrial sewing machine. They told us that they feel very happy for getting what they needed the most. Now they can calmly do their work since they had orders. Apart from improving their economic activity, in the future they have the dream of buying their own house for the family to love more comfortably. Currently they live in his parents' house.
