A loan of $1,000 helped to buy hardware.


Julia's story

Julia is a former client of the institution. Earlier she worked with a solidarity group, Las Uvitas. Currently she has been working on her own since 2004, during which time she has shown herself to be responsible and punctual with her payments, with an approach to improvement.

She lives in an "anticrético" [when a tenant pays a fixed sum upon renting a house instead of monthly rent] and shares the apartment with her daughter, who is studying economics in the university. The loan will be used for buying hardware accessories, which are in demand in different places in the city of El Alto and for which she arranges the quantity in accordance with the request. She also will buy retail the material to make gifts such as plates, cups, and others that she sells in party halls on Saturday and Sunday. Julia works both these jobs to support her daughter and the household expenses.

She is happy about the support given.
