Flor De Amapolas Group's story

In the Cascada communal banking group in the city of El Alto, the “Flor de Amapolas” association was formed more than eleven years ago. Paulina T., who is currently the president, is one of the founders who invited her female neighbors and friends to become part of the group.

The members of this group are mainly merchants selling all types of products such as blankets, mattresses, vegetables, fruit, sweaters, woven wraps, grains, and more. They need to purchase greater quantities of product in order to obtain greater profits.

In this group: Paulina, Josefa, Rosa, Simona, Irene*, Felicidad, Sofia, Brigida, Adriana, Teodora, Chiara Zuleta Lucia*, Maria Eugenia, Lidia, Damiana
