Alejandrina's story

Alejandrina is 46 years old and works selling food in her food stall, which is located in the Villa el Carmen area of La Paz. Her food stall is located at one of the stops of the many minibuses that go through the area, and for this reason she has an established customer base.

Alejandrina is a long-standing client of the institution. She plans to use this loan to buy ingredients such as potatoes, vegetables and meat for making her products. She is requesting this loan because she lacks the capital to buy these ingredients.

Alejandrina is confronting challenges in her business such as growing her customer base. She plans to use the profits to improve her family’s quality of life, as her business is her only source of income.
