A loan of $800 helped to buy noodles, rice, sugar, milk, and other products to stock her neighborhood store.


Mariana's story

Mariana is single. She and her mother and her brother live in a humble, rented home in the Tembladerani area of the city of La Paz. She runs a small neighborhood store when she is not in school. She needs the loan to buy merchandise (noodles, rice, soft drinks, sugar, and milk). She wishes to expand her business, increase her income, and improve her lifestyle. Mariana’s dream is to make her business grow and to be able to get her own place to live.
