Alejandrina

President of the Ninawara Association of Villa Tejada in the city of El Alto, Alejandrina A. is a divorced mother of seven. Her main occupation is the sale of lamb and pork meat at the Plaza Garita de Lima market in La Paz. She has done this work since she was 18 years old and with time, has become one of the longest tenured vendors in the area. She owns her own market stall, but has given it to her sons to work while she tends someone else's stall.


Dona Alejandrina needs a loan to realize her long held dream of opening a small grocery store and butcher shop, with the purpose of generating enough income to cover her home expenses, where she still lives with some of her daughters and sons-in-law.
