Jhordana's loan finished fundraising, but these other borrowers need your support

A loan helped to build a warehouse for agricultural output.

Jhordana's story

Jhordana is 19 years old, single and lives in her own house, in the Nor Yungas province of the Bolivian department of La Paz.

Jhordana works in agriculture, growing coca plants. She has a lot of experience, as she started working as a teenager helping her parents. Now she has inherited land from them and, for the past 2 years, has grown and cultivated the plants.

She works Mondays through Saturdays, from 8 am to 6 pm. She sells the leaves in the town of Coroico, where there is a high demand. The leaves have medicinal properties and a high nutritional value: they contain alkaloids, proteins, vitamins, minerals and are rich in antioxidants.

This is her first loan, for which she is applying through Fundación Sartawi. It will be used to build a warehouse for storage of the agricultural output.
