10 Estrellas Del Norte Group's story

The Communal Bank “10 Estrellas de Norte” is starting its eighth loan cycle with Pro Mujer as part of the Alto Lima Community Center. This group consists of eight members and is led by a Board of Directors in which Sra. Lidia is the president.

The loan will benefit small business owners such as Sra. Lidia. She currently has a business of selling pastries, cakes, and empanadas. Lidia became knowledgeable about this business after learning the trade on her own several years ago.

The loan she is receiving now will be used to increase her capital for buying flour, oil, and sugar in bulk. She acquires her supplies from wholesale vendors in the city of La Paz and then uses them to make the products she sells at her retail space. Working in this manner enables her to generate income to support her family. Lidia is single and independent.
