A loan of $1,000 helped to buy fabric to make blankets..


Dolores Lidia's story

Dolores sells woven blankets and reed rugs. She works in her home in the Ballivian area in the city of Alto de Paz. She works from Monday to Sunday, and she is well known for her work and has orders in the local stores. Her husband is a wage-earning chauffeur. The purpose of the current loan is to increase working capital since the cost of fabric for the blankets is low at this time of year.

She is a very busy person and lives with her husband. She has three grown children. The applicant has a great desire to get ahead to live better and grow her business. She’s very thankful for the opportunity that’s been given to her.
