Emiliana now has a business selling food. She says that she learned this business a number of years ago on her own initiative by observing how this market works.

Emiliana is taking this loan to increase her capital (to buy rice, cooking oil and noodles). She will make her purchases from the wholesale vendors in the city of La Paz. After she makes the food, she will sell it in her sales stall. This type of work allows her to generate resources to support her family, as she is single and has 4 children.
