Margarita has been selling wicker furniture for more than five years. She goes to the weekly street markets in the city of Tarija to display her products and be able to sell them. She’s separated; her husband left her more than 15 years ago. He sends her child support for their two children who she’s raising. She’s of humble condition and still does not have a house of her own in the city. She’s been renting the same house for more than five years. This is why she wants to increase her operating capital to earn higher profits so she can save a bit more and in time acquire a house of her own where she can give her children better living conditions and a comfortable place where they can do their homework and school activities since they currently don’t have an adequate physical space in which to do so.
