Esther Gimena's story

Esther studied until the fourth grade of secondary school. She ended her studies with much difficulty due to the economic necessities of her family. Now, she has two daughters. She is a single mother. The father of the girls abandoned them. They receive very little economic support from the father of the girls. To be able to get ahead with her two daughters, Esther works different jobs. She began with the sale of soft drinks in union meetings, and then made a greater investment selling food. She tried to find a greater market. She went to the border union meetings and soon to slightly larger events like fairs and social activities like promotions and others. Soon after, she inspired herself to work as an agricultural intermediary bringing oranges to Cochabamba. She has three years of experience in this activity. The loan will be used as operations capital to be able to transport oranges to the city of Cochabamba. The client seeks to always to get ahead for her daughters and her family.
