Asu-La Fuerza Group's story

Paula is a 60-year-old woman. She's in the middle of the photo in a black sweater. She has two minor children who are still in school; she takes care of them on her own.

She has sold breakfast, lunch, and dinner for five years. She's very hardworking. She sells all hours of the day, making the most of living in a very commercial area where she can sell anytime.

She wasn't able to earn any income from the beginning of the quarantine because the sale of food was prohibited in Bolivia for three months and she had to pay the rent on her business all that time.

She requested a loan from Sembrar Sartawi IFD to buy more ingredients wholesale so she can prepare more food and products to be able to sell more. That way she can recover what she wasn't able to earn these past three months.

Her children are her biggest inspiration. She wants them to have a good future. Please note: The child in the photo with their face covered is one of the group's borrowers.
