The sisters stop at a store called El Gallo on the way to Puerto Plata to buy sewing supplies for their company. They decide to buy purses, too. But the salesclerk, Jorge Almonte, recognizes them and puts his card in Minerva's purse. Aside from wanting to buy new purses together for fun, it might symbolize a new sense of commitment to each other and for better days ahead.
