Estrellas De Oro Group's story

The communal bank “Estrellas de Oro” will begin its third cycle with Pro Mujer, as part of the Centro Focal Copacabana. It comprises nine members and is managed by a board of directors, of which Salustiana is the president.

The loan that they will take will benefit small micro-entrepreneurships where Salustiana is a member. She has a business selling milk. She indicates that she learned this business through her own initiative several years ago.

The loan that they will take now will be to increase capital for the wholesale purchase of cattle that she will acquire from the wholesale vendors in the city of La Paz. Later this will serve her as a means of production; with this, she will be able to sell cheese. This form of work allows her to earn income to support her family economically. She is married and has two children.

In this group: Salustiana, Graciela, Concepcion , Gumercinda , Teresa , Lucia Basilia, Felipa, Eva , Sonia
