A loan helped a member to buy clothes wholesale.


27 De Mayo Group's story

The 27 de Mayo communal group is part of the Copacabana branch. It is made up of nine members and is led by a board of directors of which Mary is the president.

Mary is 20 years old, single and has a daughter. She has a business selling children's clothes. With her loan she will buy clothes wholesale that she will acquire from wholesale vendors in the city of La Paz. She will later sell them from her work space. This form of work allows her to generate resources to support her family economically. Her aspiration is to expand her business. Mary asks that you once again have confidence in her communal bank.

Note that it is difficult to see the face of Ignacio in the photo because he didn't want to be photographed due to health issues.

In this group: Micaela, Edwin, Mariela, Zulema, Ignacio, Wara Marysol, Mary, Mariela, Jenoviba Nora
