Prisca's story

Prisca lives in the community of Entre Rios, Cochabamba Department, with her 3 children, whom she cares for. Her children collaborate in her activities. Prisca sells meals. She has a restaurant and it's one of the most visited local places. She has been selling meals for many years and is very dedicated to her activity. Prisca prepares different types of very rich dishes and she also sells a variety of soft drinks. Each day, she sells from 50 to 100 meals. On festival days, she sells even more, plus from 40 to 50 soft drinks. Prisca lives in a rental apartment on the 2nd floor above her restaurant. With great effort in her work, she has acquired an urban lot where she intends to construct her own house. The capital she has at present is insufficient to cover construction costs. That's why Prisca is requesting a loan, to carry out all this activity and, thus, be able to live in her own house.
