Plan-Picaflores Group's story

Fidela is a 66-year-old woman. In the photograph, she's wearing a flowery blouse, an apron, and is holding a blue cap in her hand; she's in the middle, in between the other members of the communal bank. Fidela is married and lives with her husband in an owned house located in the “Plan 3000” zone of the city of Santa Cruz de la Sierra, Bolivia.

Fidela makes a living from selling food in the meal center in the area. She has more than 15 years of experience in this field. She's very well-known and has many regular customers. She works from Monday to Saturday from 7 a.m. to 1 p.m. She's a very hardworking woman.

Fidela is requesting a Kiva loan via Sembrar Sartawi to buy ingredients to make her food. She dreams of improving her income and increasing her sales with the sole purpose of saving up so that they can enjoy a good standard of living in her old age.
