A loan helped to buy clothing wholesale.

Siempre Creciendo Group's story

The "Siempre Creciendo" communal bank is part of the Villa Copacabana agenda. The group includes eight members, who are friends and neighbors from the area, and they are led by a board of directors where Mrs. Jimena is the president.

Jimena is 26 years old, and she is in a common-law marriage. She currently has a business selling clothing. She learned this business long ago.

The loan she is taking out now is to increase her capital to buy more clothing wholesale. She will buy from wholesales in the city of La Paz, and then she will sell the clothing from her stand.

This work enables her to generate resources to support her family financially. Her goal is to grow her business. She asks that you once again trust her communal bank.
