A loan of $400 helped to cover the medical expenses of her sister's gall bladder surgery.


Gabriela's story

Gabriela lives in her parents’ house in the Tembladerani area of the city of La Paz. She works as an employee of a pharmacy where she gets a monthly salary. She uses her salary to pay for her necessities and those of her sister, who is ill.

The loan that she is requesting is to pay her sister’s medical expenses. Her sister will have a gall bladder operation. Due to the social nature of the loan and the form of payment, she qualifies for a new loan.

Gabriela’s dream is to be able to become independent from her parents’ house and to be able to buy a little house.
