Editing & Wikipedia perception[edit]

She did not know that anyone can edit and has not tried.

Online shopping & donations[edit]

P15 has shopped online primarily for items she can't find in Puebla (for example certain styles of a bag). She does not really trust that the items will be delivered. She has a debit card and has used offline bank transfer.

She has not donated online. She sometimes gives money to people on the street (unclear if canvassers).== Devices ==
