Sonrisas Group's story

The “Sonrisas” loan group will start it's first cycle in Pro Mujer, as part of the Centro Focal Villa Copacabana. It is composed of 9 members and is directed by a board of which Veronica is the president.

The loan that they will take out will benefit the small business owners like Veronica. She currently has a business selling clothing. It should be known that she learned this business through her own initiative several years ago.

The loan that she will now take out will be to increase capital by buying wholesale clothing that she will get from the wholesale vendors in the city of La Paz. She will then sell them in her selling space. This form of work allows her to get an income to support her family economically as she is single and has 3 children.

In this group: Veronica, Elizabeth , Trinidad, Maribel, Sofia, Lizet Griselda , Graciela, Juan Carlos, Juana
