Diamantes Group's story

The Diamantes Community Bank is made up of 10 customers who live in the Kupini Central Zone - located near the Kupini Soccer Field. These partneers work selling food, crockery, clothing, popcorn, fruit, and condiments. It is a bank with the most enduring partners. Rosalia, as leader and president of the bank, is one of the banks founders. The bank has existed for 4 cycles, and Rosalia works selling fruit in the Kupini market. During her term she has learned to be a leader who makes sure that participants make their payments. At the same time she is respectful of her companions, having been able to increase her capital in her fruit stand and bring additional income into her family. Maria Luisa is the treasurer of the bank, and one of founding members of the Diamantes bank. Currently, this partner sells crockery in the Eguino Plaza - located in the downtown area of the city of La Paz. She had not counted on capital for her economic activity, however, with the loan that she will receive she will purchase additional merchandise; increasing her capital and her economic stability. Jose, a partner who has joined the bank is in his second cycle. He is very dynamic, happy. He serves as the secretary of the bank, and is currently working as a driver. He will use this loan to invest in the purchase of tools to repair his vehicle.
