Carolina is from the city of La Paz. She lived in an area called Ernesto Torres before she came to the Llojeta area. Llojeta is a very busy area in our city. She has two school age children, ages four and ten. She is not married, but she is in a common-law marriage.
She has been selling groceries for three years. She says that she will use the loan to buy rice, noodles, and sugar. A good part of the money was used to buy dried fruits and condiments. She is a very hard-worker.
She is very grateful to the institution for the support they have given her.
