Yecid, who is 32, sells second-hand toys on his stall in the busy Avenida 16 de Julio market in the city of El Alto. This will be Yecid's first loan with the institution and he plans to use it to buy toys in bulk to stock his stall. His reason for seeking the loan is to develop his business. Yecid's major challenge is competition, as there are already a number of other people running identical businesses in the same market. He will use the loan to improve his goods and his quality of life. His dream is to set up his own shop and to extend the range of toys on sale.
