Las Provincianas Group's story

Las Provincianas is a group of 12 women who attend their meetings at the Alto Lima community center. They share the characteristic of speaking the Aimará language (native language). Teodora Limache explains that they initially met in the German Busch zone in a rented house. But, with the passage of time, they had to move to the Alto Lima community center. Teodora sells jackets that she takes to Desaguadero (on the border with Perú). She will use the loan to buy jackets, and she will be careful so that they are different styles. The rest of the members also have different businesses such as selling calculators, blankets, fish, vegetables, sweaters, and other things.

In this group: Antonia, Agustina, Teodora, Graciela, Maria, Erika Jeannette, Celia, Cipriana, Sabina, Soledad, Adela, Patricia Mabel
