A loan helped to purchase hardware items to improve her sales and cover expenses for her two daughters.


Elvia Sonia's story

Elvia is 29 years old. She is a single mother of two girls, and her business is selling hardware items. She does her work in the Challapata rural area, which shares the use of three languages: Castellano, Aymara, and Quechua.

Elvia and her daughters live in their own house. She has a room there facing the street, where she set up a business. She earns a living selling hardware items, such as padlocks, light bulbs, bolts, hinges, tools, etc., from Thursday to Tuesday. Her hardware store is in a good location at the local fair, so she has continuous sales.

In order to improve her business, she needs to stock it with tools and assorted items. Her advantage is that her business is in a good location, so her sales are continuous. The problem is stocking her business. Her dream is to expand her hardware store. She wants to improve her sales to cover the family expenses.

With this loan, she will purchase wholesale hardware items to stock her business and improve the sales. This is the second loan that she is receiving from the institution in the two years that she has operated this business. For these reasons, Elvia is requesting a loan to purchase hardware items to improve her sales and cover expenses for her two daughters.
