Suma Sartawi Group's story
The group "Suma Sartawi" is part of the Pro-Mujer family. It is located in the Villa Exaltacion area in the city of El Alto. To date, it has twelve members who have proven to be an organized group in their credit assessments and their internal activities. Most members of the group are married with children, nearly all them school-age. The main activity of the association Sum Sartawi is trade. For example, Asencia sells a variety of sweets, Experanza is dedicated to the sale of woven blankets and Lidia sells groceries. All of them generally purchase products wholesale and then re-sell them. They want to invest capital for these wholesale purchases to improve their earnings and meet all the obligations they have to their families.
