A loan of $400 helped investing in the purchase of jewelry.

Teresa's story

Mrs. Teresa L. C. sells jewelry such as earrings and rings, as well as hatboxes, in the area. She lives with her husband, who works as a wage-earning driver. They have three school-age children. Both parents look after household expenses, and their parents help out when they go out to work.

The loan will be invested in acquiring more jewelry, as there is higher demand due to the celebration of Jesus del Gran Poder. This is a pagan-religious celebration that crosses through the whole downtown area of La Paz and is very muy popular with tourists.
