A loan of $575 helped to purchase jewelry and cosmetics for resale.


Patricia's story

Patricia is an old client of the institution [Emprender]; she has taken out various group loans, but now she is applying for a personal loan. Patricia works selling jewelry and cosmetics in different parts of the city of La Paz. She is applying for this loan to buy jewelry from several catalogs based in Mexico; she will sell the jewelry in several locations around central La Paz from a moving cart. Her work is difficult, because she has to be out in the sun all day. Her husband works in a public institution, and they have small children who are studying in middle school. Patricia's hope is that one day her children grow up to be accomplished professionals and good people. She is a very hard-working person with a drive to succeed and improve her family's quality of life.
