A loan helped a member to buy seeds wholesale in order to plant and harvest vegetables to sell.


Kayimbaya Group's story

The Kayimbaya communal association is part of the Juan Pablo II branch. It is made up of nine members and is led by a board of directors of which Fronicia is the president.

The loan they seek will benefit micro entrepreneurs such as Fronicia. She is 44 years old, married, and had seven children, but one died, so she only has six.

She has a business selling vegetables. She will buy seeds wholesale that she will acquire from wholesale vendors in the city of La Paz. This will provide her a means of production as she plants and harvests her vegetables. This form of work allows her to generate resources to support her family economically.

Her goal is to expand her business and see her children become professionals. Fronicia hopes the group can one again count on its communal bank.

In this group: Ana Betzabe, Diana Pamela, Santusa, Karina, Eva, Justina, Fronicia Martha, Martha, Ivan
