A loan of $200 helped working capital.


Alejandra's story

Alejandra sells roasted chicken. She is 21 years old and has two children. Her husband helps her tend the business. Their home and business are both in Alto Chijini in La Paz. They prepare the take-out food daily. This is the first loan she has taken out and it will go to paying for bulk groceries, sauces and vegetables, saving money. She previously tended a similar stand as an employee before setting up shop on her own. She has access to this credit on the strength of her work experience and her receipts, which show she will be able to repay the loan.
