Zapatitos Group's story

“Zapatitos” (Little Shoes) is a group composed of seven women and one man who attend their meetings at the Collpani Community Center. The group president is Carmen A.. She is 43 years old and has worked with different groups within Pro Mujer for approximately 10 years.

Carmen is a seamstress who specializes in making jackets. Over time she has been able to grow her business and create jobs. Carmen acquires her supplies from the outskirts of the city of El Alto and then sells her products in the same city. She already has a place where she sells her merchandise. Carmen says she enjoys sharing with her friends during their meetings. At the moment, she is requesting 1500 BOB in order to buy fabric.

The other members of this Communal Association have different businesses in the manufacturing, service, and retail sectors.
