Gimena's story

Gimena is a new client of the institution, though her mom is an existing client of Emprender. Gimena is single and lives in her mom's home which is located in Tembladerani district, in the city of La Paz. Her business is selling pork in one of the busiest markets in the city. She is a very young and hard-working person who recently finished her studies in hairdressing. For this reason, she has requested a loan to buy the supplies and materials that she needs as she would like to open a beauty salon in order to make additional income. This will enable her to improve her quality of life. She feels happy and grateful to the institution for the support that they are giving her which helps her to continue growing her business.
