Bartolinas Group's story

The “Bartolinas” Communal Association is located at the “Juan Pablo” Focal Center. The group started up recently with 10 members because of the necessity to increase their working capital. All of the members of the group have different businesses. Some make shawls, others have neighborhood stores, and others sell coffee, toys, and stationary supplies. They need the loan to strengthen their businesses by buying materials (wool, yarn) and merchandise (sweets, toy cars, paper). They all really like the fact that, apart from obtaining credit, they can bring their children to group meetings and receive training about how to manage their businesses.

In this group: Sara, Juana, Nancy Jeannette, Gregoria, Rufina, Pamela Rossmery, Jhanneth Rossio, Rosalia, Wilma, Nieves
