Bolivianitas Group's story

Ortencia, 38, is married with three children, and works selling fruit salad. With this loan she will buy fruits, yogurt and sugar wholesale, that she buys from the whole-sellers of the city of La Paz, and that she will later sell in her business.

This job, a business that she aspires to grow, has allowed her to generate resources to support her family financially.

Ortencias asks that you trust again in this communal bank.
