Sebastiana's story

Sra. Sebastiana is 55 years old and has two children, ages 18 and 30. She manufactures a variety of vests and overalls. Sebastiana has a workshop that is located in the District of Charapaqui.

This is her first loan with Emprender. Sra. Sebastiana will use the loan to buy an overstitch sewing machine so that she can do a better job. Her existing machine has a few defects and she has many orders that have to be delivered since there is currently a great deal of demand.

Sebastiana sells her products at different fairs in the city of El Alto, but she also makes deliveries to various markets in the city. She is a very hardworking individual who has the drive to press forward and improve her quality of life. Over time she wants to offer her products to different markets in the interior region of the country, as well as at the various fairs within the city of La Paz.
