Ruth's story

Ruth is single, has two children, and lives with her parents in the city of La Paz in a brick and cement house that belongs to her mother.

Ruth sells clothing for a living and because of the changing season she wants to buy winter merchandise. She is the only bread winner in her household and needs support. Winter clothing is always in much demand in a place as cold as La Paz.
