A loan of $1,025 helped to buy stuffed toys by the bundle and to buy toys.


Ruth Rina's story

Ruth, 41, has two children whose ages are 12 and 9. She sells stuffed toys in her stand located in one of Cochabamba’s busiest streets. This loan is her third sequence in the institution and Ruth will use it to buy stuffed toys by the bundle and to buy toys to stock her business. Her reason for requesting this loan is to expand the business. The business challenge Ruth faces is competition because there are many others selling the same things on the street where she’s located. She will use profits to improve her products and her quality of life. Her wish for the business is to open a store of her own to display the variety of stuffed toys she has for sale.
