A loan of $875 helped to buy notebooks.

Ana Maria's story

Mrs. Ana María C. Q. lives in Villa Nueva Potosí, in La Paz, Bolivia. She dedicates herself to the production and sale of notebooks. She sells them on La Tablada street and also travels to Potosí and Oruro, where she has many different distributors. Ana Maria has been a member of the communal bank since the December 21st, 2007. Her first loan gave her the capital she needed to expand her business while at the same time providing an education for her 4 children. Before the loan, her sales had been very low because she could not make very many notebooks at a time. Her husband also dedicates himself to making notebooks and works with Ana Maria in the family business which has become the family's only source of income.
