A loan of $5,650 helped a member to buy clothing at wholesale.


Amistad Sin Fronteras Group's story

The communal bank, "Friendship without Borders," will start the first cycle in Pro Mujer, as part of the Focal Center 3rd of May. It is made up of ten members, and is run by a board of directors where Cynthia is the President.
The loan they will take out will benefit small micro-entrepreneurs where Cynthia is a member. Currently she has a business selling clothing. She says that she learned this business on her own initiative several years ago.
The loan she will take out now will be to increase the amount of capital, to buy clothing at wholesale, that she will get from wholesale vendors in the city of La Paz. Afterwards she will sell it in her stall. This way of working allows her to generate resources to support her family.

In this group: Cinthya Lizeth, Gladis , Silvia Rosa , Benita, Lucero Elizabeth, Mabel , Leonardo Israel, Laila Rossy, Elizabeth Exaltacion, Nicole Estrella
