A loan of $800 helped to buy a refrigerator to keep the meat she uses in her business fresh.


Paula Andrea's story

Paula lives in her late grandparents' home. Her mom lives in Santa Cruz. Paula sells sandwiches in a very busy area of Cochabamba. She has been in this business for five years. She works from 7.00pm to 6.00am. She makes her sales all night long. Paula's husband works in Santa Cruz as a construction worker and she is left in charge of their two children. Her husband comes home once a month and helps her to care for the children. Paula is a young and hard-working person. She will use her loan money to buy a refrigerator to keep the meat that she uses to make her sandwiches fresh. She is grateful to the institution for the support they have offered her.
