A loan helped to purchase supplies to increase her production capacity.

Estela's story

Estela, age 41, is the single mother of three school aged children. She lives with her family in a rented dwelling in Villazon, in the department of Potosi, on the border with the neighboring country of Argentina.

She is a strong and determined woman who works preparing and selling fried empanadas [turnovers]. Every day she begins her work day early and works until the end of the day. She markets her products locally and also in the town of La Quiaca in the neighboring country. She wants to increase her production capacity, in order to earn more income and so to offer her children better opportunities.

This is the first time she has accessed a loan through Fundación Sartawi.
