America Latina Group's story

The “América Latina” (Latin America) group is represented by Angélica and is maD. up of 12 members, who are 10 women and 2 men. They all live in the same neighborhood so they know each other well, are very sociable, friendly, united and cheerful.

Angélica is group president; she’s married and has 4 children. Her husband’s name is Andrés and he’s a barber; he has his barbershop in their home. She sells clothes in the 16 D. Julio market on Tiwanaku D. la Ceja avenue in El Alto; she also sells downtown and goes out to the more distant provinces as well.

The other members are also merchants but in different activities such as: making children’s clothing, clothing sales, brick making. One of the members provides transportation services in his own taxi.

The loan they requested will be used to increase their working capital in each of their businesses. The members have a lot of experience in their work and, despite much competition in the market, the members come up with ways to place or sell their merchandise because the support of their families depends on it.

The members have loans as members of the communal bank and as individuals; they collaborate with a variety of institutions and have much experience. They are enthusiastic about working with us in their first loan cycle.

In this group: Angelica, Noemi, Jose Julian, Cecilia, Rosmery Ana, Porfirio, Claudia, Catalina, Consuelo, Josefina, Natividad Victoria, Lidia
