La Paz, Bolivia / Retail

A loan of $1,500 helped to buy ingredients to keep making incense candy.


Eva's story

Eva is married and she lives in her own home in the San Martin neighborhood of the city of La Paz. She makes sahumerio, or incense, candy (sahumerio is an ancient ritual that is used to give thanks to Mother Earth). She has done this work since she was very young. She also has a minibus and between these two businesses she makes enough income to support her family.

She is asking for this loan to increase her capital, buy more ingredients, be able to make her incense candy in greater quantities, and be able to sell abroad.

Eva's dream was to have her own home and she achieved it. Currently, her dream is for her three children to become professionals.
