Sandra
Sandra sells DVDs. She is separated from her husband but lives with her two young daughters. One of them is a bit ill but, thanks to Sandra’s care, she is recovering.

They live in the Alto Pampahasi neighborhood which is 20 minutes from downtown.

Sandra has a store where she sells the DVDs and she also goes to the 16 de Julio market in El Alto, which is the largest in the city, to sell.

Sandra is a cheerful woman who works hard so that her daughters can have a good education, hoping that they will become professionals.

Sandra and her daughters live in a small apartment and hope to save enough to buy their own home.

She is asking for funding to buy cases of blank DVDs.

They are grateful to Emprender and to Kiva for the trust placed in them by granting this loan.
