Cuestion De Fe Group's story

In the Los Andes area in the city of El Alto, there exists a center by the same name. It is to this center that “Cuestión de Fe,” an association of thirteen members, belongs. With the help of their loan advisor, this kind group of women work enthusiastically with Pro-Mujer to improve their businesses. The majority of the women are married with children of various ages. The daily household costs increase everyday and the incomes that they earn are insufficient to cover their basic needs.

The group produces a variety of products. Flora, for example, makes and sells yogurt. Others sell cellphone cases, videos, school supplies and makeup. They are hoping for more credit so that they can purchase wholesale products and increase their sales. The members of the group are confident that they can improve their incomes and their economic situation for the benefit of their families.
