Elena's story

Elena has been selling groceries in her own grocery store for over ten years in a suburb located in El Alto de la Paz, Bolivia. She opens her store at 6am and finishes work at 11pm every day, since the items she sells are essential goods.

Elena will use this loan to purchase groceries such as noodles, rice, sugar and oil. Elena has two young children who are both studying. They are the reason why she struggles every day to get ahead so that one day her children might be able to undertake a degree and improve their quality of life.
