Leydi Miriam's story

Leydi is a young person who lives in the city of Cochabamba in her parents house. She is the oldest sister of three sisters. She is a very responsible person who is dedicated to her family and her work.

She studied and worked helping raise pigs for her father. Since she needed to generate more income for her family, she works and was able to save a little money and open her own store selling snacks and other things.

Now her business has grown but she needs to invest more money to have a solid business that will sustain her.

Among other future plans, Leydi plans to use her new credit to finish her studies.
