Fortaleza Group's story

The Fortaleza Communal Bank will begin its first cycle in Pro Mujer as a part of the Villa Copacabana Focal Center. It is made up of nine members and is led by a board where Dati is the president.

The loan they take out will benefit small microentrepreneurs where Dati is a member. Currently she has a business selling cosmetics. She says that she learned this work on her own initiative several years ago.

The loan that she will now take out is to increase capital to buy wholesale cosmetics that she will buy from the wholesale vendors from the city of La Paz for later sale in her sales space. This form of work allows her to earn income to support her family financially, as she is single and has two children.
