Lindaura's story

Lindaura is a 50-year-old woman, and she is single without children. She has a business making wool sweaters.

She treads the path of making sweaters with a lot of dedication and care. She is the pride of her family, and through her work she takes care of her parents. She works in the 'Cruce Villa Adela’ area where remote populations through detours are found above the highlands. Lindaura has a calm and friendly appearance, and everything she says sounds like a poem of friendship and unity because her mother tongue is Aymará, and she also speaks Spanish.

She takes care of her parents because they are older and don't work. They live in their own home made of adobe with potable water, electricity and a sewage system. She has a business making sweaters from sheep's wool. She works out of her home, and she sells her products at wholesale as well as by individual product. She sells her products by travelings around fairs and commercial districts. She weaves her products my machine.

"I started my business by selling clothing with the goal of making my own garments..." she says. Her business is successful because the city where she lives is very cold and wool clothing is in demand. The benefit of her business is that she sells all her products, while the drawback is a lack of wool to product a higher quantity.

Her dream is to open a store. She would like to buy sheep's wool at wholesale. This is her first loan with the institution in the 15 years she has had her business. For these reasons, Lindaura is requesting a loan to buy sheep's wool at wholesale to make sweaters.
