Esperanza del Carmen is 55 years old, and 10 years ago she began selling tomatoes in order to survive. Since the economic situation didn't improve, she began selling clothing on commission.

Esperanza del Socorro is 40 years old and she has had a small clothing stall in the Eastern Market for 7 years. Her children help her after school. Claudia Patricia sells clothing while Doris Maricela, 27 years old, has a grocery store.
