Mirtha's story

Mirtha is 49 years old. She lives in an urban area called “Quior”. She has two dependent children, a 12 year old and a 19 year old.
Mirtha has sold shoes at the Alto San Pedro market for over 10 years. She also rents a car that is used as a taxi.
Both businesses have a high market competition, but with her experience after so many years, she managed to acquire fixed clients that regularly purchase her shoes.
She has an average daily sales income of 250 bolivianos ($35), with an average earning of 40% over the daily sales.
This is Mirtha’s third loan and she has proven to be responsible with her payments before.
