Las Dalias Group's story

The Las Dalias Group, as part of the Villa Copacabana Agency, is comprised of eight members, It is led by a board of directors, and Norma is the president.

Norma is single and has two children. She has a business selling stuffed potatoes (fast food). With this loan she will buy potatoes, vegetables, flour, and cooking oil wholesale, which she will get from the wholesale vendors in the city of La Paz. After making the food she will sell it at her stand. This way of working allows her to generate financial support for her family. She aspires to expand her business.

Norma asks that the lenders are able to trust in her communal bank once again.
