Juana is a tenacious woman who is worthy of admiration. She’s 42-years-old and was born in Cochabamba. She lives in the Santa Bárbara zone, one of the poorest neighborhoods. She has four children.
Juana gives everything for her children since their father was killed in a work-related accident two years ago. She receives a pension because of this but it’s not sufficient to support her children.
She has a neighborhood store in her zone where she sells a variety of products like soft-drinks, bread and others. She also sells meals for retired people in her store. She needs more working capital because she wants to have a good variety of merchandise in stock. The current loan is an opportunity for her to strengthen her enterprise which to date has been in operation two years.
