Santa Teresita Group's story

The Santa Teresita communal bank is a part of the Agencia Villa Copacabana. It is made up of eight members who are friends and residents of the area. It is led by a board of directors, of which Ayda is the president.

Ayda is 42 years old, in a common law marriage and has four children. At this time, she has a business selling llauchas [empanadas]. She learned this business several years ago.

The loan she will take out now is to increase her capital by buying flour and cooking oil wholesale. She will acquire them from wholesalers in the city of La Paz. Later, she will prepare and sell her food in her sales space. This work allows her to generate resources to support her family financially. Her goals are to expand her business and for her children to have good careers. Ayda asks that you keep putting your trust in her communal bank.
