Sydney Ximena
Sydney is 20 years old and lives in the Achachicala area of the city of La Paz. She lives in her mother's house and has a daughter who is one and a half years old. She has a breakfast service with 3 years experience in this business activity. She has experience managing her resources. She buys her supplies from the Rodriguez market. She serves breakfast in the area of San Pedro (in the photo she is inside her food stall with customers). She counts on reliable customers.

Sydney Ximena has been capitalizing to sell over time. She is a single mother and educates her child alone since she was born with what she earns from her own job, as she does not have the support of her family, only her mother. She gets up early at five o'clock in the morning to prepare the food, as she needs to be in her workplace serving customers from 6:30 am.

This loan will be used to buy supplies in the grocery store. She needs this in order to increase her income and so be able to sell plates of food and have a little more income for the end of year celebrations.
