A loan of $1,025 helped to pour a concrete floor in her house.


Lized's story

Lized sells various vegetables on Wednesdays and Saturdays, which are the days of the fairs. On these days there is considerable demand for her products. She leaves very early in the morning, at 4:00 a.m., to acquire the products directly from the producers. She then sells them in an itinerant manner on a very popular street in the city of Cochabamba.

She has six years of experience in this line of work. She will use the loan to buy cement to pour a concrete floor in her house. This will make her family more comfortable.

She lives in her own home in the Sud region, a semi-urban part of the city of Cochabamba. Her family consists of her spouse, who works in Argentina, and her two young children, who go to school.

Lized states that this business activity allows her to support her family, so she is grateful for the trust given to her by granting her the loan.
