This study is a grounded theory of informal entrepreneurs entering a polycentric system characterized by weak macro institutions. They interact with lower-level institutions and exploit the opportunities that arise.The structure of the paper is organized with a theoretical section where we review the key theoretical blocks or institutional polycentrism, and formal and informal institutions and the emergence of informal adjustments, later we introduce the methods and analysis, finally we briefly show evidence of our findings and conclusions.
