Lidia's story

Lidia lives in her parents' home in '6 de Agosto' district, in the city of El Alto. She has one son. Lidia is a saleswoman. She makes blankets and sells them in the markets of El Alto. She uses the profits that she makes to support herself and her son.

Lidia will use this loan to buy a sewing machine so that she can carry out her work more quickly and efficiently. She is satisfied with the loans that we have given her. Her record qualifies her to obtain a new loan and she is considered a good client.
