Mr. Efraín is a young person who works selling goods on credit. He travels from the city of La Paz to Cochabamba where he distributes his products mainly in offices. He lives with his wife and their three children, the oldest of whom is in college and has decided to pursue music in a band. Mr. Efraín and his family live in the area of high Pampahasi which is located 30 minutes from the center of town. Mr. Efraín’s wife, Carmen, also works selling various goods on credit but only in La Paz.
