Claveles Group's story

Clavel is the name of the association that belongs to the Exaltación Community Center in the city of El Alto. This group has ten members. They have one year of much dedication with the organization. Besides being devoted housewives, they also have different businesses, which generate resources for the support of their families.

Justa is the president of the group. She, like most of her colleagues, makes bricks. Once they are made, they are sold to wholesalers to be marketed in the city of El Alto.

All of them need to increase their capital to buy raw material. This is the only way they can increase the profitability of their enterprises and improve the quality of life for themselves and their families.

In this group: Justa, Nancy Juana, Victor, Tereza, Lucila, Sandra Adela, Noemi, Karen Mariela, Sonia, Bertha
