Santa Isabel Ii Group's story

The communal bank “Santa Isabel II”, which is part of the Collpani Agency, consists of eight members and the management board is presided over by Hilda.

Hilda, 43, is married and has five children. She has a business making wool ponchos will use her loan to buy yarn and wool wholesale from dealers in the city of La Paz. Then she will make and sell her goods at her stall. This type of work allows her to earn an income to support her family economically. Her goal is to expand her business and buy a car.

Hilda asks that you trust in her communal bank once again.
