A loan of $1,000 helped to buy food supplies at wholesale for baking meals in her clay oven to sell.

Lucrecia's story

Lucrecia is 40 years old and has 4 children, ages 7, 9, 12, and 19. She sells meals in the Bolivar zone of El Alto city. Her meals are baked in an artisan oven made of clay.

This is her 1st loan cycle with our institution. She will use the loan to purchase supplies for baking meals, including rice, beans, potatoes, and cooking oil, at wholesale. Her reason for soliciting this loan is a lack of capital. Lucrecia plans to use these benefits to continue buying supplies for elaborating her meals.

Lucrecia is a very hard-working person and she is happy and grateful to our institution for the help it offers, since this is the only activity that can provide for her survival.
