Olga is waiting to use her savings and build an adobe house. Maria Alejandra will use her savings to par for medical care for her youngest son. Eventually, she hopes to save enough to buy a minibus that her other son will drive.
Olga’s dream is to start a new business selling plastic wares, the same as her sisters. On the other hand Maria Alejandra dreams of buying a house in the center of the city where she can open a grocery store. Where she lives now is far away and not a good place for a business. Also, she would like to buy a small piece of land where she can grow vegetables.
