Minervas Group's story

The communal association “Minervas” finds its focal center in Alto Lima, in the city El Alto in La Paz, Bolivia. Minervas is comprised of 15 women who have worked alongside the Kiva field partner Pro-Mujer (For Women) for the past five years.

This group has different businesses. They are dedicated to making sweaters, creating curtains, cooking meals, serving tea, selling luggage, and selling sweets via ambulatory kiosks. Now they state that they need credit in order to purchase raw materials and / or products in bulk in order to increase their sales. This will ensure that they can generate more revenue.

In this group: Juana, Hilda, Maxima, Elizabeth, Olivia, Vistoria, Sofia, Laura, Marisol, Sandra Zenobia, Lia Noemi, Teresa, Eugenia, Pamela , Elizabeth
