For two years, Edith has been dedicated to selling shoes. She does not have her own shop since she buys the shoes in the city of Oruro and transports them to the city of Cochabamba where she sells the merchandise to people who have fixed stalls for their sale in the markets of La Paz, Quillacollo and in Sacaba. She is requesting the amount in order to increase her working capital and, in this manner, have greater income. Apart from dedicating herself to this business, she is studying to be a nurse at the university. She is a hard-working woman, with a great desire to get ahead. She is very thankful to the institution for the support provided.
