Elizabet
Elizabet is the oldest sister of her siblings, so it was her responsibility to work from a young age helping her mother sell food as a street vendor in the city of Cochabamba.

Because of her family's lack of money, she decided to do it on her own part time in the area where she lives, learning from her mother to be a consistent and tenacious person in this type of business. At the same time she attended class and cared for her younger siblings for her mother, who was in the city all day with her business.

After her daily struggle and consistency, the board of directors of this type of merchant accepted her because of her dynamism and the responsibility she showed. Now she's one of the ones who is most present in the place where she sells for her business.
