Los Lirios De Quime Group's story

The Communal Bank “Los Lirios de Quime” is starting its second loan cycle with Pro Mujer as part of the Copacabana Community Center. This group consists of nine members and is led by a Board of Directors in which Sra. Marisol serves as its president.

This loan will benefit small business owners such as Sra. Marisol. She currently operates a neighborhood store. Marisol has become knowledgeable about running this business after learning the trade on her own several years ago.

The loan she is receiving now will be used to increase her capital for buying canned goods in bulk. She will acquire these products from the wholesale vendors in the city of La Paz and then sell them in her store. By working in this manner, she is able to generate income to support her family. Marisol is single and has one child.

In this group: Marisol, Cresencia , Eulogia, Dionicia, Leonora, Lusmila Jimena, Maribel , Eusebia, Silvia
