Karelia's story

Karelia is a 19-year-old young woman. She lives in the community of Milluhueya, in the north of the city of La Paz.

She has worked growing coca, a plant with a lot of nutritional properties, since she was 17. She distributes her product mainly in the city but also in Coroico.

Karelia was very affected by the beginning of the quarantine. She wasn't able to distribute her product in the normal way.

She requested a loan from Sembrar Sartawi IFD to buy fertilizer and soil amendments so her crop will be bigger, and that way she can earn more income.

Karelia loves her work. She wants to be a farmer for a long time. She's working and saving so she can buy an irrigation system later.
