Marioly is 33, has no children and lives in the province of Cochabamba in the south zone, she rents a house with her parents Juan Manuel and Ana Maria who are seniors, her dad is 60 and her mom is 59. The economic activity of her parents was carpentry, which Marioly learned since she was 5 years old to help her parents, as she was growing up so was her knowledge of carpentry. Marioly now has all the tools from her parents and she works in carpentry making all sorts of furniture such as dressers, beds, windows, doors for construction and any type of wood work. Marioly supports her parents who are ill, she buys medicine and whatever is needed so that they get better, but she spent a lot of money that was going to be used to purchase wood, reason why she requests a loan and she has a new contract for furniture that will be taken to the western part of the country.
