Filomena Roxana's story
Mrs. Filomena sells seasonal goods. This time of year she sells sweaters and blouses. She started working together with her friend when she was very young. Now they sell these products in Ceja de El Alto and local fairs. Little by little she was able to save a considerable amount of money. Her earnings from this job help pay for family expenses. Her husband is a masonry worker and both live in her mother-in-law’s house with their children. This is the first time she has applied for a loan from a financial institution. Through much effort they were able to build part of their house and now they are applying for the loan to finish building two more rooms to make their children more comfortable. They try hard to offer their children a better future.
