A loan of $500 helped to build and remodel her house steps.


Maria's story

Maria lives in her own home in Villa Nuevo Potosí neighborhood, in the city of La Paz. She is single and has one dependent child. Maria works as a cook, preparing food for private events. She uses her income to support herself and her child. She will use this loan to build and remodel her house steps in two flights.

This is the first time that Maria has requested a loan. The socio-economic analysis we have carried out qualifies her to receive a loan.
