Cristo Viene Group's story

Over two years ago, fifteen women formed the association “Cristo Viene” (“Christ is Coming”); they are convinced that by carrying out their own activities they can improve the quality of life of the families. The majority of the members live in the zone Villa Exaltación, located in the city of El Alto. They carry our various activities, such as, selling cosmetics by catalog, clothing, and making ‘polleras’ (A pollera is a traditional long skirt worn by women in some regions of Bolivia), ‘pollera’ underskirts, mantillas (head scarves), while other members make and sell lunches and other meals in the city’s market. The association “Cristo Viene” would like to increase their sales and for this they need to purchase supplies and/or products to be able to gain higher earnings.
