A loan of $1,500 helped to build her house.

Cecilia's story

Cecilia, age 52, lives in the city of Cochabamba in Bolivia. She has a high school education, but she was not able to finish her studies due to her family’s lack of financial resources. She has four dependent children.

Cecilia has had a food service business for many years. She makes the dishes by order for special events, the municipal government, and more occasions. She also sells groceries.

Cecilia is humble and very hard-working. She does everything in order to give the best to her children. She does not have support from her husband because he abandoned her and her children. She alone takes care of all of her children. She does everything in order to give them a better life and to pay for their education.

The current loan that Cecilia is requesting is to build her house because she wants to improve the family’s stability.
