Patricia Blanca
View original language description ↓
Patricia does not have her own house, and she as a nanny in a friend's house. She has an 8 year old daughter and is a single mother.


She works selling 'anticuchos' (a dish made with lamb's heart), and she does this on the Papa Paulo avenue. She goes out to sell it from 7pm-1am. She has been doing this for quite a while and she has many clients; her anticucho is considered to be the best in all of Cochabamba.


She would like a loan to pay off personal debts and also to invest a little in raw ingredients for the anticuchos, mainly to buy the hearts, some potatoe and some carbon every two days. This is Patricia's third loan with our institution and if she has ever been behind in payments it has been for good reason, as she was quite ill and could not go out to sell regularly for a while.

Translated from Spanish by Liz Harvey, Kiva Volunteer



Patricia no tiene una casa propia y vive como cuidadora en la casa de una de sus amistades, tiene sólo una hija de 8 años de edad y es madre soltera.
Su negocio de venta de anticuchos (corazon de res) se encuentra ubicado en la esquina de la avenida Papa Paulo y sólo sale a vender por las noches a partir de las 7:00 de la noche hasta la 1:00 de la madrugada, tiene bastante experiencia en el negocio y bastante clientela ya que sus anticuchos son considerados los mejores de todo Cochabamba.
La presente solicitud es para pagar unas deudas que tiene con terceras personas y también invertirá un poco en la adquisición de materia prima para los anticuchos, generalmente compra corazón, papa y carbón cada dos días.
Esta es la tercera solicitud de Patricia en nuestra Institución y si bien algunas veces presentó algunos retrasos fueron justificados ya que la pasada gestión ella se encontraba delicada de salud y no podía salir a vender regularmente.
