A loan of $1,450 helped to buy building materials and supplies to finish her house.

Lidia's story

Lidia lives in very humble conditions. She comes from a family with very limited economic resources. Prosperity was not on her side, that is, it did not accompany her. She looked for work everywhere and finally got a job nine years ago as a secretary in the Callapata Notary Public. Income earned in this job allows her to cover basic living costs, that is, to feed her family. She’s hoping to improve her quality of life and needs building materials and supplies to continue building her house on a small lot she bought years ago with the few resources she obtained. She currently does not own a house; she lives with her father.

Even though the income they earn isn’t much it does suffice to cover life’s current and future expenses. When she was interviewed she said her greatest dream is to have a house of her own and when that dream is a reality to have a business of her own and gradually, successively grow.
