Rosas De Alto Lima Group's story

The communal bank Rosas de Alto Lima will begin its thirty-seventh loan cycle with Pro Mujer as part of the Centro Focal Alto Lima. It is made up of eight members and is led by officers of whom Viviana is the president.

The loan that they will get will benefit the micro-entrepreneurs of whom Viviana is one. Currently she has a business selling shoes. She says that she learned this business at her own initiative some years ago.

The loan that she will get now will be to increase her capital, purchasing shoes in bulk, which she will get from the wholesalers in the city of La Paz, later she will sell them in her sales space. This type of work allows her to generate resources to support her family economically since she is married and has six children.

In this group: Viviana , Lizeth Rocio, Emma Deysi, Juana , Franco Alberto, Teresa Maria, Vania Reyna , Elena
