Sara Leticia's story

Sara was required a government permit to carry on with her activity, the main benefit being that she will succeed in starting her activity once again and that she will consequently be able to earn money for her family, on top of continuing working, something she likes very much. Sara sells clothes in different flea markets of her town, but she currently sells clothes form her house because she is not allowed to work freely since she does not have the permits yet. She is a very hard-working and resourceful woman, as she always looks for ways to earn money in order to help paying for her family’s expenses. Her husband is a mechanic, and he works from home as well; he used to run a garage, but he had to close it because of crime in the area of his shop. However, he has dedicated himself to mechanics all of his life, and for this reason her keeps on working from his house in order to help paying for the considerable expenses of his family.
