Benita's story

Benita is 23, married and has two sons that are 4 and 2 years old. She lives in the region of Chuquiaguillo in the city of La Paz, which is located 40 minutes from the center of the city. In this region the villagers work in separating sand and stones from river water, so it can be used in construction.

Benita works in this business. She has a supply of construction materials that she sells to different businesses. She will use the loan to repair one of the motors that is used to pump water from the river to separate the sand and rocks. Benita is a young and hardworking person who is thankful to the institution for the assistance offered.
