Suma Sartawi Group's story

The name “Suma Sartawi” unites an association of 12 persons who have met for 3 years in the community banking center Exaltation Villa. Among the great many activities of this group we have Martha, who dedicates herself to needlework, the same as Irlanda; Asencia has a stall selling sweets and cookies; Regina sells beef; Irma prepares delicious juices based on quinoa, and Juan sells DVDs on the streets. We should mention Lidia who sells artisan pictures in the atrium of the San Francisco Church in the city of La Paz. Lamentably, she still lacks basic services in her home and needs greater income in order to be able to solve this problem for the wellbeing of her children.

In this new loan cycle the Suma Sartawi association affirms that the loan is needed to resupply their businesses with capital, acquiring a variety of products (pictures, sweets, milk, meat, cloth, and other items).

In this group: Irlanda, Ascencia, Felipa, Martha, Irma, Esperanza*, Lidia, Marleni Virginia, Regina, Rosa, Maria De Los Angeles, Juan Gabriel
