Nevaditas Group's loan finished fundraising, but these other borrowers need your support

A loan helped to buy rice, noodles, and oil in bulk.

Nevaditas Group's story

The communal bank "Nevaditas" will begin its first cycle with Pro Mujer, as part of the Collpani Regional Office. It is made up of 10 members and is lead by a board of directors where Señora Nancy is the President.

This loan will benefit small businesses where Señora Nancy is a member. Currently she has a business of selling groceries; she says that she learned this business on her own initiative several years ago.

The loan that she now asks for will be to increase capital (purchasing rice, noodles, and oil in bulk) which she will acquire from the wholesalers in the city of La Paz. Subsequently she will sell it in her retail space. This form of work allows her to generate resources to support her family financially, since she is single and has five children.
