Josefina's story

Josefina is a single mother and lives in Achumani, in the city of La Paz. She lives with her son in a humble home and they provide for themselves by selling merchandise in her stationery store. Josefina needs this loan to increase her business merchandise. She will buy exercise books, pencils, ballpoint pens, erasers, etc. which will give her a greater range of products to sell.

Josefina's dreams are to provide her son with a good education and to grow her business.
