A loan of $600 helped to buy thread for her business.


Prudencia's story

Prudencia makes a living from washing sand and also makes shawls of thread for women who dress in the traditional manner. She lives in a rented adobe house with a cement floor. Her home is located in the Irpavi area of the city of La Paz. Prudencia washes sand and makes traditional clothing, from which she generates her income to cover expenses for food, electricity and water. She requires the loan to increase her working capital. She will buy thread to increase her production of shawls and thus improve her earnings and her quality of life. Prudencia's dream is to have a weaving workshop, and to own a house.
