A loan of $500 helped to buy furniture to sell.


Paola Lizeth's story

Sra. Paola is a young client who recently started her family and has many dreams. She currently lives with her husband at the home of her in-laws, who gave her a small amount of capital to use to find work or to start a business. Paola wants to earn more. She has the support of her parents and her husband, who works in construction.

Paola sells furniture at the July 16th fair in El Alto, but only on Thursdays and Sundays. With the money from this loan, she will buy furniture so that she can sell it for a profit. This will allow her to increase her operating capital. Paola wanted to get married before having children and acquiring some assets. She and her husband are aware that it will be very hard, but they have the will to succeed and improve their quality of life.
