A loan of $1,200 helped to buy rice, noodles, and sugar in order to reopen her grocery store to improve her income.

Nieves's story

Nieves lives in the home of her family in La Paz’s San Simón zone. She works as a functionary in a funeral home and fills in Davinci forms (used for the payment of value added taxes) for some clients. She maintains herself and her family with this activity.

The loan that she is requesting is for startup capital as she used to have a grocery store (rice, sugar, noodles) which she wants to reopen in order to improve her income. Nieves wants to buy at wholesale and make sales to her customers.

Nieves’s dream is to have a general store for her products and to give her children a good education as her husband abandoned her.
