A loan of $1,000 helped to pay for a place to live in Achacachi, in order to be closer to the market for her produce.


Juana's story

Juana lives in her on house, located in the community of Irama Belén de Achacachi. She dedicates her time to the production of cheeses, and her husband works on a farm called La Salle, in Coroico (a town in Los Yungas, to the north of the city of La Paz). This is their main source of income. She has 4 children.

She will use the loan to pay for a place to live in Achacachi, in order to be closer to the markets there. This is her first loan from [field partner] Impro; an analysis of her income and expenditure shows that she makes a good living and is a suitable person for the loan.
