A loan of $825 helped to repair her vehicle.


Maria Elena's story

Señora Maria is 42 years old. She has two children, ages 4 and 6. She sells a variety of types of beef and lamb meat. She sells in her store, where she also offers basic products. Her store is located in the Delicias zone of the city of Cochabamba. This is her second loan sequence with the institution. Señora Maria is going to use this loan to repair her vehicle, since it has some problems, and this does not allow her to do her daily work, since this [vehicle] is what transports her to buy her products. Señora Maria is a very entrepreneurial and hard-working person. She feels happy and grateful to the institution for the support offered her, since the previous loan went very well for her. She grew her business and improved her income.
