but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!


A loan helped to expand her business.


03 Miski De Viacha Group's story

The communal bank "03 Miski de Viacha", part of the 'Agencia Alto Lima', is composed of eight members who are friends and is directed by a board of directors where Mariela is the President.

The loan requested will benefit a small microentrepreneurs group of which Mariela is a member. Currently she has a skirt sewing business, she does it at her home and sells them at fairs. She says that she learned this business through her mother twenty years ago.

The loan requested is to increase capital with which to buy fabric and wholesale thread, that she will acquire from the wholesale sellers of the City of La Paz, to make and sell skirts.

This type of work allows her to generate resources to support her family economically. She is 32 years old, she is married and has five children. Her aspirations are to expand her business, open her own butcher shop and raise her children to become professionals.
