A loan of $1,025 helped to buy sacks of coca leaves to resell.

Margot Drina's story

Sra. Margot is 30 years old and has two children, ages 8 and 5. She sells the sacred coca leaf and offers her products at a coca distribution center in the city of La Paz. This loan is her first transaction with Emprender.

Sra. Margot will use the loan to buy coca leaves by the sack since the supply is scarce as a result of the rains that have hit the District of Los Yungas. This has resulted in an increase in the price, so she needs the money to buy and build up her reserve of this product. Her reason for requesting this loan is so that she can increase her inventory of merchandise.

Sra. Margot faces challenges in her business, such as dealing with the competition. She will utilize her profits by continuing to buy merchandise so that she can generate more income. Margot is pleased and grateful for the opportunity she has received to grow her business and improve her income. In the end, she will improve the quality of life for herself and her family.
