A loan of $500 helped purchase of earrings and necklaces.


Geovana Estela's story

Geovana has dedicated herself to the sale of crafts in La Paz, Bolivia on a street called Sagarnaga which is in a colonial district popular with tourists. It is a place where many foreigners come to buy objects native to the region and the country as well as fabrics and crafts made by Bolivian hands. She has been doing this work since she was small when her mother owned the business. She has a young daughter she cares for with the help of her family. Geovana is very responsible and with the loan she will invest in earrings and necklaces made from seeds and other craft materials.
