View original language description ↓
Betty used to earn a living selling things on credit which is how she scraped together enough money to set up a more stable business. She now sells snacks at a stand in the city center. The business is going well and she can help her husband with household expenses. She lives in an "anticretico" (a property arrangement common in Bolivia) with her husband and 2 children.
