Antonia's story

Mrs. Antonia has lived in Santa Cruz for more than a year. Before this she lived in La Paz. She had to move to Santa Cruz for her health. She sells prepared food in her rented house in the Villa Iro de Mayo zone. She is a responsible person and works at this business each day. She gets up early in order to buy meat and vegetables for her prepared food. Each day she serves her meals to her customers. She is requesting a loan in order to buy wholesale priced groceries. By purchasing food in this manner, she will not have to go to the market each day. She would also like to buy a freezer for the meat. Her oldest son came with her from La Paz and has his business with her so that they can be together. She dreams of growing her capital in order to obtain a larger workplace as she wants to buy a small house so that she doesn’t have to pay rent and can have her own house.
