Angelica's story

Angélica makes spiral notebooks that she sells wholesale in the cities of Potosí, Oruro, Cochabamba, and Santa Cruz. She also delivers them to offices. She has been working out of her home, located in the Villa Nuevo Potosí zone, for more than 10 years. Her children help her with production and sales. Sadly, her husband passed away, and she has had to take care of the whole family. Now, through hard work, she has been able to make her business succeed and cover food and education costs. She is now thinking of her children's future. She taught them the business well so that in the future they can take care of themselves. Angélica started working with a paper cutter and a hole punch. Now she is requesting this loan to be able to buy others and support her work and that of her children. Angélica has not been working with this organization for long, but in a short period of time she has shown that she is a hard worker and that she is punctual and responsible.
