A loan of $1,025 helped to buy fabric, thread, and other items to increase her production of polleras (traditional embroidered skirts).

Elizabeth's story

Elizabeth lives in her parents’ cement-floored, brick home in the Santa Rosa area of the city of El Alto. She has a job sewing polleras (traditional embroidered skirts).

Elizabeth needs this loan to buy supplies; she will buy fabric, thread, and other items to decorate more polleras and, in this way, improve her income and quality of life.

Elizabeth’s dream is to be able to have a workshop, because right now she can only work in her own bedroom.
