Elizabet's story

Elizabet is 20 years old. She is a single mother of two babies. Her business is selling potatoes.
She works in "Quillacollo", a rural area, surrounded by green vegetation and colourful plants.
Elizabet lives in her family's home. Her father gave up a sales stall in the potato market in the community to work and provide for his two children.
She works selling potatoes. She sells what her family grows and buys wholesale directly from producers.
She sells the potatoes in a fixed location as well as in local fairs on the weekends.
To cover the costs of raising her children, she needs to sell a greater quantity of potatoes, to generate the minimum income for her family.
The advantage of her business is that she can sell in various locations, the problem is needing to offer a larger quantity of potatoes.
Her dream is to rent a home. She wants to sell a greater volume of potatoes. With this loan she will buy potatoes wholesale to sell a larger quantity and earn a better income. This is the first loan that she has received from the institution in the two years that she has been in this business.
It is for these reasons that Elizabet is requesting a loan, to buy potatoes wholesale in order to generate a better income and cover the costs of raising her 2 babies.
