Sra. Ines is a single, very hardworking woman. She lives with her brothers because she doesn’t have her own home. She has a hand operated knitting machine with which she makes wool sweaters that she sells in some of the better known markets of El Alto and the city of La Paz.
Her current thought is that with the money from the loan she will buy a bigger machine and hire someone to help her make sweaters. In this way she will be able to make her business grow.
Sra. Ines is a person who has a lot of goals. Above all she wants her business to succeed. She has the support of her brothers who love her a lot since she cared for them since they were little. They love and respect her like a mother and support all her decisions. Sra. Ines is very grateful to Emprender and Kiva for the confidence shown her in granting the loan.
