A loan of $600 helped to buy traditional "cholitas" shoes.


Carla Alejandra's story

Señorita Carla lives in her parents' house in the Kupini area. She works selling traditional "cholitas" shoes, which are produced in her mother Genoveva's workshop. Carla also works in the workshop, but she buys these shoes from her mother and sells them at the July 16th festival and in the city of El Alto. She is young and is still studying at the university. She learned about the business of selling shoes from Doña Genoveva who has worked in the workshop for several years. Carla is requesting this loan to increase her inventory of shoes. She will buy shoes at wholesale due to the fact that she has enough orders for the festival of the Lord of Great Power. She is a young woman who is eager to succeed and is grateful for the support of the institution.
