Integracion Group's story

The communal bank “Integracion”, part of the Senkata branch, is comprised of eight members and run by a board of directors, of which Olga is the president.

Olga is 38 years old, married, and has two children. She has a business selling fast food (fried chicken, pork),and juices. With her loan, she will buy chuño [freeze dried potatoes], potatoes, and seasonings in bulk from the wholesale vendors in the city of La Paz. Then she will use them making and selling food in her sales space. This method of working permits her to generate income to support her family financially.

Her goal is to expand her business. Olga asks that you again trust in her communal bank.
