A loan of $725 helped to buy wholesale quinoa.


Guillermina's story

Guillermina is 38 years old and she sells quinoa. Her store is located in the Batallas region in the city of La Paz. This loan is her first from the institution. Guillermina will use it to buy wholesale quinoa to stock up, since it is in demand due to its high nutritional value. She is seeking this loan because she doesn't have the capital to invest and this is the time of year in which she sells a lot of quinoa. This is also the harvest season of quinoa. Guillermina faces many challenges in her business and has a lot of competition. She is going to use this money to increase the stock of her merchandise. Guillermina is a very hard-working person and she is thankful for the opportunity that this loan provides her. In time, she hopes to have a large stock of this product and also to have wheat and other cereals.
