Villa Dolores Group's story

Margarita Madani sells rice. She is a member of the Villa Dolores group. She has been married for 19 years, and she has a son. She learned the business that she currently has eight years ago. She learned by helping her siblings. Two years ago she started on her own. She buys her merchandise from different places like Santa C., Caranavi, and Perú. She loads all of her merchandise in a vehicle. She sells her product by traveling from zone to zone in the city of El Alto. She now needs a loan to buy merchandise. She hopes to be in the group for a long time and even get a larger loan. Just like Margarita, the other members have different businesses like selling juice, clothes, footwear, ceramics, meat, and rice. They need a loan to buy merchandise.
