Eva Cristina
Eva came to El Beni with her family in search of better economic conditions but not finding them they moved to El Chapare where she spent her entire childhood. When she graduated high school with economic help from her brother she went to Quillacollo and her only objective was to complete her schooling but because of factors that came up in her life as a young single mother abandoned by her child’s father she took on the entire responsibility of raising her daughter alone and had to completely leave her schooling aside and start to work.

It’s been more than a year now since she decided to use her savings to open her own business. She currently has a business providing Internet access, as well as national and international telephone calls. She wants to improve the business’ growth because she plans to modernize it to provide better customer service.

She’s open seven days a week taking advantage of her daughter’s still being little. She will use the loan to replace the electrical system and for supplies and accessories for her business.
