Graciela sells seasonal clothing and she also has a vegetable stand in one of La Paz's busiest streets. She sells her clothes, according to orders placed with her, in Camiri (Santa Cruz province). Graciela has six children, three of whom study higher education and three are still minors attending school. She takes care of supporting her minor children as well as the older ones. She enters Kiva's program via the selection process for this line of work and because of her need.
Graciela is very hard-working and she will use the funds to buy merchandise to meet the needs of ther customers with regard to variety of clothing because this is the back-to-school season and she has many orders to fill.
Graciela is grateful to Emprender and Kiva for the trust placed in her by granting the loan.
