Señora Paulina lives in El Torno. She was born in the department of Potosi, mining capital of Bolivia. Her activity is the sale of vegetables in the supply market of the city of Santa Cruz. The supply market is one of the most frequented markets of the city, because of the economical prices offered by the vendors. Señora Paulina has been dedicated to this work for about 30 years. The loan will be used to purchase vegetables and wood, since her husband is a carpenter. Her children are independent and live on their own and, for their age, they are reasonably self-sustaining. She is grateful to the institution for the support they have offered to her.
