A loan of $1,500 helped to buy seasonal winter clothing.

Lizet Fabiana's story

Lizet is single and lives in the Abasto region (of Bolivia) in a house that she leases from her mother. She works selling clothing during the day and studies at night. She sells clothing in open-air markets and on weekends she travels to locations around the city of Santa Cruz where fairs take place. In order to be able to sell her products this way, Lizet also takes advantage of national holidays when she doesn't have classes.

Lizet is twenty-one years old. She sells new clothes. Her mainstays are her studies and her work. She sacrifices a great deal so that, through this clothing sales business, she can cover her study and living expenses. With the money from the loan she will buy seasonal winter clothing wholesale, since her earlier loan was very successful and she generated more income and increased her work capital.

She begins selling very early in the morning. She is responsible and wants, day by day, to overcome the obstacles she faces. Her desire is to finish her studies and to practice her profession. In this way she will be able to improve her quality of life.
