Estrellas Brillantes Group's story

The communal bank Estrellas Brillantes [Shining Stars], as part of Agencia Collpani, is made up of eight members who are neighbors from the area. It is run by a board of directors, of which Victoria is the president.

The loan that they will receive will benefit small business owners, and Victoria is one of them. She is 30 years old. She has had a business of selling toys at the fairs for six years. The loan that she will now receive will be an increase of capital for the purchase of wholesale toys that she will acquire from wholesalers in the city of El Alto. She will then sell them at her retail space.

This type of work allows her to generate resources to support her family financially since she is in a common-law relationship and has two children. Her hopes are to make her business grow and to purchase a piece of land to provide comfort to her children.
