Trebol Group's story

The Trebol (Clover) Communal Bank is maD. up of 12 members, mostly women, who live in Viacha (outsiD. of El Alto) near Ejercito Ave and Murillo St. The group is led by its president, secretary, and treasurer: Mrs. Petrona T. C., Lucy L. M., and Rossio A. Limache. The group members are involved in a variety of different businesses: some sell sweets, fruits, vegetables, cosmetics, clothing, shoes, books, envelopes, toys, and gifts; others repair cars or work in construction. About half of the group has between four and seven years of experience working in their respective businesses, while the other half has between 10 and 37 years of experience.

The group finished its second loan cycle with a reputation for punctuality and discipline. It is a group of very united, responsible people, but unfortunately, due to the current situation in Bolivia, many of its former members were forced to leave the country. As a result, Trebol is launching its third loan cycle with some new members. The group is certain that the loan they will receive will allow them to improve and expand their businesses.
