The group is new. For the first time they are working with the wives of the criminals in the San Pablo jail in Quillacollo. They are in prison for different crimes, but they have the desire to work and improve themselves. For that reason, they are grateful to the institution for not denying them to opportunity to rehabilitate themselves. These men produce the furniture. They are people who help each other, and their wives sell the furniture.
