A loan of $1,200 helped to build a dwelling.


Ricarda's story

Mrs. Ricarda García, 51, is a widow living with her four children who help her with her farming chores and to care for livestock in the community of Corani Pampa which is 72 kilometers from the city of Cochabamba.

Mrs. Ricarda García farms potatoes and peppers and needs capital to build a dwelling on her lot in Cercado Itocto Kara Kara. Mrs. Ricarda García is from a humble, hard working and responsible family. For her it is very difficult to go to banks in the city; besides, they ask for too many requirements.

There was the initiative to go to that zone to offer loans. Ricarda is very happy to have the opportunity to get a loan that will make it possible for her to build a dwelling and her children live in better conditions with needed basic utilities.
