Sulema sells sports shoes, and her place of sales is in the commercial zone of the city La Paz. Sulema is going to use the loan to purchase shoes in bulk, thereby offering a better service to her clients and increasing her earnings. She is asking for the loan in order to continue improving her business. Sulema is going to use the funds to continue purchasing merchandise and stocking her business. She is a hardworking woman and feels happy for the opportunity provided her. In some cases, the members of the group are the sole support for their families.
