Ninoska's story

Ninoska is a young woman who is quite the entrepreneur and very dedicated to her work and household. Several years ago her parents went into debt when they purchased their home and three years ago Ninoska's mother had a stroke. Therefore all of her father's income has been used to care for her mother, and the debt was put into Ninoska's name so she is now covering payment.

Her work consists of handling legal transactions, transfer of property titles, transit and mortgage tax services and everything related to legal paperwork. She is studying law which has given her the knowledge she needs to do her work, but says where she learns more through hands-on transactions and legal action. Unfortunately, her mother is still ill and the doctors have recommended that she live somewhere such as Cochabamba. She has blood pressure problems and the altitude of La Paz makes them worse. Ninoska travels on weekends to see her mother and help out with related expenses.
