Kantutas Group's story

"Kantutas" is the name of an association belonging to the Exaltación Regional Office in the city of El Alto. This group consists of 12 members who, with great dedication sustained throughout their six years with the organization, have not only run their households but have also acted as breadwinners for their families. To achieve this they engage in a wide range of activities from marketing cosmetics and clothing items to selling mate infusions, coffee and tea from carts at their local street markets.

Without exception, all of these women must increase their capital to be able to diversify and increase their merchandise; only in this way will they be able to increase the profitability of their enterprises and improve their own and their families' quality of life.

In this group: Gimena Justa, Martha Maxima, Paulina Yola, Jose Feliciano, Pasesa, Cristina*, Jacquelinne Ivonne, Jimena, Tancara, Maria Roxana, Maria Antonieta, Mariel Rosario
