Elita Lidia
Elita is 32 years old and is married with five school-age children aged 4, 8, 10 and 15 (the oldest two are twins.) She knits blankets and also makes clothes such as sweaters, vests, and gloves. She sells these items in different markets in the city of La Paz. Her home is located in the zone of Circunvalación.

This is her fifth loan from this institution. Elita will use the proceeds to buy wool and other materials to make clothing. Her reason for seeking this loan is for additional working capital. She faces challenges in her business as she does not have a knitting machine which would make it easier to do her job. She will continue to buy knitting materials and keep increasing her production. This is her only income-generating activity with which she supports her family.
