Roca Fuerte 1 Group's story

The Communal Bank “Roca Fuerte 1” is part of the German Busch agency. This group consists of eight members and is led by a Board of Directors in which Sra. Elena is the president.

Elena is 61 years old, married, and has four children. She has a business of selling tea, coffee, and sandwiches. Her loan will be used to buy sugar, tea, coffee, cocoa, and herbal beverages in bulk that she will acquire from wholesale vendors in the city of La Paz. This will allow her to prepare and sell her products at her vending stall. By working in this manner, she will be able to generate income to support her family. Her aspirations include expanding her business.

Elena is requesting that the lenders place their trust in her Communal Bank group once again.

In this group: Elena, Mario, Fabiola, Delia, Paulina, Jhanneth, Carla, Olivia
