Cristal De Amistad Group's story

The association 'Cristal de amistad' ('Crystal Friendship') belongs to the focal center Senkata, located in the city of El Alto and for 6 years it has been working together with the Pro-Mujer (Pro-Woman) family.

The majority are married women and have large families; they need economic resources to cover their kids' basic needs which grow each and every day. It is for this reason that they need bigger credits; to increase their sales with the assurance of obtaining higher earnings.

The 'Cristal de amistad' association dedicates itself to business in general, for example Jacinta sells potato flour, and different types of potato; Maria sells seasonal fruit; Gabriel is a driver of public transport. Others among them will sell articles for the carnival parties.
