“Martina has sold meat in one of La Paz’s most crowded markets for over 30 years. This is her only source of income for herself and her two daughters.
Martina is a very good client; she has had no late payments and is very responsible. The loan will be used to improve her butcher shop. She will buy a new refrigerator for the meat and with any leftover funds will increase her working capital in order to provide better customer service.
She is very hard working and is always thinking of ways to improve her quality of life. She is very grateful to the institution for the support given.”
