Maria's story

Maria is a single mother with a small son. At present, she lives in a small area in her mother's house, located in the city of La Paz. At present, she works more than 8 hours a day as an accountant in private businesses and, also, she works independently on weekends. With her current income she manages to cover the costs of food and basic services for her little son. Maria intends to invest the loan in the purchase of a more complete and up to date computer to facilitate her work. In this way, she will be able to improve her income. Maria's dream is to become professionally independent and offer more comfort and security to her son, and in this manner, to improve her quality of life.
