A loan helped a member to sell vegetables.


Republica De Francia Group's story

The República de Francia communal bank, as part of the Centro Focal Copacabana, is made up of 9 members and is led by officers, of whom Verónica is the president.

The loan they will get will benefit the small micro-entrepreneurs of whom Verónica, 24 years old, is one. Currently, she has a business selling vegetables. She states that she learned this business at her own initiative five years ago.

The loan she will get now will be to increase her capital by purchasing merchandise (vegetables in bulk), which she will get from the wholesalers in the city of La Paz and will later sell the vegetables in her sales space. This type of work allows her to generate resources to support her family financially, since she is single and has two children.

Her aspirations are to have a stable business and to deliver with a vehicle.
