A loan of $4,775 helps a member to buy clothing wholesale.


Lechuguitas Group's story

The “Lechuguitas” communal bank will begin its first cycle in Pro Mujer, as a part of the Panamericana Focal Center. It is made up of eight members and is led by a board of directors, of which Viviana is the president.

The loan they will take out will benefit the micro businesswomen, including Viviana. At present, she has a clothes selling business. She reports that she learned this business on her own initiative several years ago.

The loan she will take out now is to increase her capital by buying clothes wholesale. She will acquire it from wholesalers in the city of La Paz. Afterwards, she will sell it in her sales space. This work allows her to generate resources to financially support her family, as she is married and has two children.

In this group: Viviana Flora, Ana Maria, Maria Cristina, Juan Carlos , Lizbet, Sabina, Paula , Esperanza
