25 De Julio Group's story

Victoria Y. is one of the founders of the "25 de Julio" (July 25th) group in the Santiago II regional office in the city of El Alto. Like many of the members of the group, Victoria does many different types of work in order to be able to put food on the table for her family. Victoria travels to the city of Oruro to buy various household items such as plates, pots, glasses, etc., and then sells them in El Alto's July 16th fair. Other group members also sell assorted products such as children's footwear, underwear, blankets, and more. Victoria and the rest of the group plan to use the loan to strengthen their businesses, and to purchase assorted merchandise.

In this group: Juana, Andrea, Victoria, Lidia, Juana, Toribia, Maria, Veronica, Ruth, Valentina
