She lives in her own home. Her household is located in the southern part of the city of Cochabamba which is a remote area. She has one child. Her husband is ill from terminal-stage diabetes and so she is the only one who, with her business, generates income for her family.

She indicates that the money being granted her is for the purchase of an industrial sewing machine which will allow her to sew her products more efficiently and at higher quality. She is a very hardworking person. She feels happy with and grateful to the institution for all of its support.
