Plan - La Bancada Group's story

Mercedes is a hard-working, 38-year old woman. She works hard to generate an income that will support her four young children, for whom she alone provides. In the above photo, Mercedes is the one wearing black pants and a pink shirt.
For five years, from Monday to Saturday, Mercedes has sold "patasca" (a traditional Bolivian dish) in the afternoons and evenings. In the mornings, Mercedes takes care of her children and gets them ready for school so they can have a better future.
Mercedes is requesting a loan from SEMBRAR SARTAWI IFD so she can purchase supplies and earn an income for her family. Two of her children are younger than ten years old. Mercedes needs to be able to save so she can provide them with a top-notch education.
