Principiantes - 32 Group's story

Lizet is a 24 year old woman, married and mother of two children and her business is clothing sales. She is a very enterprising woman, feisty, strong, dreamy and very hardworking: her business is in the market of La Cancha in Cochabamba, a city know for being vibrant, bustling; it is one of the boom towns of Bolivia. She has many dreams and hopes to get ahead, so she formed a communal bank with small businesspeople with similar needs to request a loan and improve her way of life (she is seated at the front of the row, blue sweater).

Lizet is of a dark complexion, medium height, long blackish hair and her mother tongue is Quechua, which she combines with Spanish to do business in this bilingual area. Her business is clothing sales, every day, every morning she gets ready to take her garments to her stall in "la chancha", when she arrives she immediately arranges the garments on mannequins and hangers so her customers see them and can get close for the sale. She dreams of growing her business and to achieve this she needs to buy clothes wholesale. This is the reason Lizet is requesting a loan to buy clothing wholesale and help to send her two children to school.
