Flor De Tihuanaku Group's story

The communal bank Flor de Tihuanaku, as part of the Agencia Santiago II [Agency Santiago II] is made up of 8 members who are friends and neighbors from the zone. It is led by a board of directors where Sandra is the president.

Sandra is 24 years old; she is married and has two children. Right now, she has a business selling clothes. She shares that she learned this business many years ago.

The loan that she is now requesting will be used to increase the capital/purchase of clothes in bulk that she will acquire from wholesale vendors in the city of La Paz subsequent to the commercialization in her sales position.

This type of work allows her to generate resources to support her family economically. She aspires to grow her business. Sandra hopes that lenders can once again trust in her communal bank.
