Blanca has been married for three years and doesn’t have any children. She lives with her in-laws and sells fast food to make a living. She makes her sales out in the street in the evenings, but not when it’s raining because she doesn’t have a roof under which to place her food and this causes her a bit of a problem. She is asking for a loan of Bs. 9,230 so she can build a room that faces the street so she can work. In this way she can improve her business and her income.

CIDRE is a Bolivian microfinance institution with a strong social commitment to the community. It works to provide quality financial services to rural and peri-urban borrowers, focusing primarily on agricultural loans for dairy farmers and micro-enterprises. CIDRE targets segments of the population that have not traditionally had access to credit, and invests in much-needed community development projects.
