Hilda Maria's story

Hilda, a 45-year-old single woman with one child, cooks and sells meals out of her home on the weekends. This began three years ago when she was raising and fattening pigs; she began making and selling chicharron (pork sausage) on the weekends. Now she sells food from Friday to Monday and also runs a small general store where she sells soft drinks and a variety of groceries. These two businesses are run out of her home in the Maica area outside the city of Cochabamba.

Because things became a bit crowded, Hilda began constructing an additional room so that her small general store could be relocated there. It still needs a roof, so with this loan Hilda will purchase the construction materials she needs to finish it. Then she will move her shop to the room which will allow her to then begin providing more goods for sale through the shop.

Hilda looks forward to the future and the opportunity to improve her quality of life once the relocation of her shop is complete.
