04-Verduritas San Antonio Group's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to purchase pants, jackets, and sweaters in bulk.

04-Verduritas San Antonio Group's story

The communal banking group "4 Vegies of San Antonio" (04 Verduritas San Antonio) is part of the Villa Copacabana Agency, and the group is made up of 10 members who are all friends. They are led by a board of which Amalia is the President.

This loan will be used to benefit the micro-entrepreneurs of this group, of which Amalia is a part. Currently Amalia has a business selling clothing (pants, jackets, and sweaters) from her market post in Hucuina, Bolivia. She notes that she learned this business through her own initiative three years ago.

The loan will be used to increase capital and to purchase pants, jackets, and sweaters in bulk. She will acquire these items from bulk sellers in the city of La Paz and then sell them from her post in the market.

This form of work allows her to generate income. She is 23 years old, is single, and does not have any children. Her goals are to make her business grow and to grow as a person.

Note: In the photograph there are only three people due to the COVID-19 health emergency. For that reason the photo was not taken of the entire communal banking group, in order to avoid large gatherings.
