Jackeline Carmen's story

Jackelline V. has worked since she was young in different institutions as a salaried employee. Despite her young age, with her savings, she was able to purchase some land in the area south of La Paz. Later, she decided to start a family for which she left work to dedicate herself to her home and to attend also to her child who has health problems. Lacking money to build a house, she decided to support her family with another type of income: she opened a bakery business selling empanadas, Berliners, and cakes. In this way, she began selling her products in the area south of the city of La Paz, Bolivia and currently, she is well known in the area.
