Eulalia Julia's story

Eulalia is a 40-year-old woman, single, and the mother of one son. Her business is selling llama wool.

She is enterprising, fighting, strong, visionary, and very hard working. She does her business in the Villa Adela zone, a place characterized by the growing business everywhere.

Eulalia has a brown complexion, long, black, braided hair, black eyes, short stature, and dresses traditionally. Her native language is Aymara. She uses Spanish for business in the city. She sells llama wool. She travels great distances through the high Bolivian plains to find llama wool producers and buy the wool. Once she gets the amount she needs, she goes back to her shop where she puts together the wool to turn it into a thin thread and weave it into llama wool blankets. Her desires to expand her business have brought her to train herself in weaving with a machine to be able to produce larger quantities of blankets. Her dream is to have a llama wool blanket production shop. She needs to buy a weaving machine and put her dreams into motion.

It is for these reasons that Eulalia is requesting a loan to purchase a weaving machine to begin working on her dreams.
