Doris Alcantar's story

Doris lives in the central Pampahasi area that is located 20 minutes from the center of the city of La Paz. She lives in her parents' house along with her husband and their small daughter. Doris is dedicated to selling second-hand clothing from her stall in the July 16 market in the city of Alto.This market takes places on Thursdays and Sundays and is the biggest market in this city. Her husband, Juan, works with his 11-passenger minibus for public service. He loans his services in the transportation syndicate that is made up of various groups and five lines of small minibus transportation. Doris has worked with loans from Emprender since the year 2005 and during all this time she has always proven to be a very punctual and responsible customer with her payments. On this occasion, she is requesting a loan to purchase bundles of clothing for the cold season. Doris' and Juan's greatest dream is to expand their businesses and buy another minibus.
