Pasesa
View original language description ↓
Pasesa is married with three children. She produces cheeses, an art she learned from her mother who owns and raises 6 cattle. The cattle produce an average of 6 cheeses per day, four days a week. In charge of her own products, Pasesa goes door-to-door to her nieghbors of Ciudadela Ferroviaria, Chijini, and some zones of the city of El Alto. She asks for a loan to be able to install a stand dedicated to the sale of milk and its by-products in the city of El Alto. This would allow her to help her husband in providing for the household and the education of their children, as well as giving her own mother the life she deserves.

A la fecha ella necesita de dinero para poder instalar una tienda dedicada a la venta de lácteos y sus derivados en la ciudad de El Alto, de esta forma colaborar a su marido para el sustento de su casa y la educación de sus niños y darle a su madre la vejez que ella merece.
