Raza Camba Group's story
The entrepreneur's bank Raza Camba is made up of nine members, eight women and a man. They work in a variety of jobs such as wallet sales, meat sales, public transportation, fruit sales, juice sales, clothing sales, cosmetics sales, food sales, and vegetable sales, and for this reason they ask for a loan to expand their businesses. Fabiola (in the photo, she is seated, the first on the right wearing a white shirt with a yellow collar). She is a 28-year-old woman, married, and has two children, ages 8 and 6, and her business is selling backpacks, wallets, large bags for travel, etc. She is a good mother, responsible, and hard-working. She carries out her business in a sales stall on the street, in the highly populated zone "Primero de mayo" in the city of Santa Cruz, characterized by its informal businesses, and with a warm climate (28ºC -35ºC). Fabiola has tanned skin, long black hair, and speaks Spanish. She lives her life alongside her husband who works in interdepartmental transport. Their children go to school and the whole family lives in their own house which has drinking water, electricity and gas. Her business is the sale of backpacks, wallets, large bags for travel, and suitcases and she works every day. "I began as a street vendor and later I bought a stand, and now it is going very well for me, since I have many customers..." she says. Her dream is that her children become professionals. She wants to expand her business purchasing merchandise in bulk to reduce her costs and have more products to sell. This is her first loan cycle with the institution in the 3 years that she has been doing this work. For these reasons, Fabiola is asking for a loan to purchase bags, wallets, and suitcases in bulk to reduce her costs and offer more variety to her customers.
