Neiva Maria's story

Sra. Neiva is 25 years old and has two children, ages 12 and 4. She sells basic necessities from a neighborhood store inside her home, which is located in the District of Horizontes in the city of El Alto.

This loan is her first transaction with Emprender. Sra. Neiva will use the loan to buy merchandise for restocking her business such as groceries, sweets, cookies, and a variety of soft drinks. Her reason for requesting this loan is that she needs to restock her store for this time of year when there is great demand. Sra. Neiva faces challenges in her business, such as dealing with the competition in the area since there are several neighborhood stores. She will use her profits to continue buying merchandise so that she can increase her capital. Having a store is one of her wishes, so she is pleased and grateful for the opportunity that has been given to her.
