Amistad Group's story

The sale of clothing and candies, hand-sewing clothing (macrame), sewing, taxi driving, and food sales are the businesses that the members of the Amistad, or Friendship, group operate. The group recently formed to enter into this loan. Fifty-five year old Julia C., married, sells clothing at the 16th of July market and needs the loan to purchase clothing wholesale. Another example is Dayonnethe A., 21 years old, who sells potatoes with sausage in the city of El Alto, in the Rio Seco area, specifically in the market "Carmen". She sells at night because that is the time of highest demand and she needs the loan to purchase potatoes wholesale.

In this group: Julia, Ana Maria, Alicia, Maruja, Martin, Gladys, Rocio, Remedios, Daynnethe
