Josefina Irene's story

Mrs. Josefina is an old client who previously worked with the Trebol de Achumani Bank. The bank was many days behind in their payments because of internal problems with the group. Mrs. Josefina assumed the debt and paid the rest off with her savings.

She lives with her small daughter but she also takes care of her grandchildren during the afternoon. According to the bank assesor Josefina was one of the most responsible members of the group and because of this he accepted the application. She needs the loan to purchase merchandise for her store. She buys her supplies in the city of Oruro. With the loan she will buy DVDs, stuffed animals, toys, and school supplies for the month of January because that is when school begins in our country.
