A loan of $725 helped to buy condiments (chili pepper, cumin, spices in general).


Beatriz's story

Beatriz is a client who sells condiments and spices. These sales are carried out in the different provinces of La Paz department. Her work begins at 5:00am. and ends at approximately 2:00pm.

Beatriz has been a widow for three years now. She tells us that it was difficult to bear the loss of her husband. With the work she does, and the support of her family, she managed to overcome this loss. She doesn't have school age children, but she does look after her grandchildren in the afternoon, and gives them her love.

Beatriz lives in the city of El Alto-La Paz, Bolivia. Her greatest dream is that some day she will become an entrepreneur in the sale of spices, and export these products to other countries, so that people in those countries can season their food with delicious Bolivian spices.

She will use the loan to buy condiments (chili pepper, cumin, and spices in general). She is a very hard-working person, and grateful to the institution for their support.
