Albertina's story

Ms. Albertina C. lives in her own home, in the Pasankeri area, west of the city of La Paz. She lives with her three children, since she is separated from her husband.

Mrs. Albertina is a worker in one of the city’s businesses. Her income supports her family.

The credit requested is for the construction of the front wall of her adobe house. The original wall collapsed, following a rainy season.

This is the fourth time that she has requested a loan and the socioeconomic research done, indicates that she is a qualified to access credit.
