Ana

Bolivia
El Alto, Bolivia / Textiles

A loan of $1,000 helped to purchase bolts of different colored fabrics for her business making skirts.


Ana's story

Ana lives in a rented house with her three younger brothers and her two young children who are 1 and 5 years old in the Los Andes area of the city of El Alto. She works sewing traditional full skirts, like the ones that are sold at popular markets in the city of El Alto. This is her main source of income, which she uses to support the family that is in her care.

She is requesting this loan to purchase materials: bolts of fabric to make skirts. This will allow her to maintain a stable flow of income. She qualified for approval based on an evaluation.

Ana's dream is to have a sewing workshop with industrial sewing machines and later to have a shop where she can sell her products.
