A loan of $750 helped to buy merchandise (clothes).


Mamani Aycaya's story

Máxima's business is selling underwear and socks as an itinerant vendor in La Pampa market, in the city of Cochabamba. She acquires her merchandise in Oruro and then sells it in Cochabamba. She has one year's experience in this business. Her family consists of her husband and her three school-age children. Her husband, Juan, is a civil servant and works in the city of La Paz. They rent their house and it is located in the south of the city, in a peri-urban area. Máxima will use her loan to buy merchandise (underwear and a variety of socks). Through this business, she manages to provide for her family.
