Maria Belinda's story
María, age 55, is married and the mother of two children. Her business is selling bed linens. She runs her business in the Villa Fátima area, a transit hub of several informal stops, taking people out to small cities or other areas within the department (departures to Los Yungas, Beni, and Pando). María has brown skin and long black hair, and she dresses formally. Her birth language is Aymara, but she has nearly forgotten it. Since she does business in the city, she only speaks Spanish. Her business is selling bed linens, including quilts, bedspreads, sheets, etc. Her dream is to own a store in a central location with many employees under her charge. She wants to increase her seasonal stock by buying merchandise at wholesale so she can earn greater income. These are the reasons why María is seeking this loan: she will buy bed linens at wholesale and improve her quality of life.
