Las Palomitas Group's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to purchase fish, potatoes, and freeze-dried potatoes in bulk.

Las Palomitas Group's story

The communal bank Las Palomitas will begin its fourth loan cycle with Pro Mujer, as part of the Centro Focal Copacabana. It is made up of eight members and is led by officers, of whom Feliciana is the president.

The loan that the will get will benefit the small micro-entrepreneurs of whom Feliciana is one. Currently, she has a business selling food. She states that she learned this business at her own initiative some years ago.

The loan she will get now will be to increase the capital by purchasing fish, potatoes and freeze-dried potatoes in bulk, which she will get from the wholesalers in the city of La Paz. Later, after making it, she will sell it in her sales space. This type of work allows her to generate resources to support her family economically since she is in a common-law marriage and has three children.
