A loan helped to buy wool in bulk.

Girasoles De Chijini Group's story

The communal bank “Girasoles de Chijini”, which is part of the Villa Adela field office, is comprised of ten members who are friends and neighbors in their area. It is run by a board of directors, of which Mery is the president.

The loan they will take will benefit small micro-enterprises such as Mery's. She has a business selling blankets. She learned this work several years ago.

The loan will be used to increase capital to buy wool in bulk, which she will acquire from the wholesale vendors in the city of La Paz. Then she will make [blankets] and sell them in her sales space. This method of working permits her to generate income to support her family economically. She is single and has two children. She aspires to have a store selling clothing.

Note: Sergio is not in the photo because he had to leave quickly to go to his work.
