Demetria's story

Demetria, 29, is a single mother with one young son. She lives and works in the community of Liriuni, in the Barrientos neighborhood. She has a kiosk along the Cochabamba - Santa Cruz highway with soft drinks, diary products, cookies, and other things that she sells to tourists, passengers, and drivers. She has three years of experience.

Demetria needs capital to increase the products at her kiosk. She lent the capital she had to her brother for two months so that he could buy a house. He hasn't returned it yet and she needs the money urgently. Demetria told us that her dream is to have her own house. She is going to save her earnings so that she can build a house in order to give her son a better future and also move him forward in his studies.
