A loan of $500 helped purchase groceries.


Emerson Beymar's story

Emerson used to work as a cook in a hotel, but left because of vision problems. He now has a place where he prepares and sells food, which is how he supports his family. He lives with his wife and son in his parents' house, located in Zona Exaltación in the city of El Alto. With this loan he will buy rice, sugar, oil and beverages in bulk to produce his dishes. An evaluation qualified him for this, his first loan.
