Beatriz
View original language description ↓
Beatriz is 29 years old and lives with her husband Enrique, who works as a motorcycle taxi driver, and her little one year old daughter. The textile business always has been a very important part of her life, as her family depends on this activity to support themselves. She has knitted garments on her machine for 5 years, during which time she has lived in the city of Juliaca. Beatriz enjoys her work and for her the best part is that she can do her work from home and be with her young daughter Heidi. The problems never end, and the demand for Beatriz's items are great. Sometimes she cannot produce enough of her products, as she has only one machine. Beatriz works tirelessly to give her family better financial stability. With the loan she is asking for, she would acquire much more material in order to increase her production and to improve her finances, as well as to get a workshop to grow her business.
