Perlas Blancas Group's story

The market center of Collpani is relatively small and is a distance from the center of the city of El Alto. In the market center, you will find the Perlas Blancas (White Pearls) Association, and its members are comprised of 14 women and 1 man. This group is made up of new businesses which include: the sale of toys, cleaning, seamstresses, making and designing clothes, sewing aprons, "Llantería" shop, and the sale pastries and fruits.

Mrs. Nicolaz M., who is 47 years of age, indicates that she had belonged to a different Association and has now decided to integrate within this group, who are friends and neighbors in her area. Her business is designing and sewing aprons. She learned this business from her sister. The loan she is requesting will be used to purchase fabric which will be used exclusively for the continued operation of her business.

In this group: Nicolasa, Pascuala, Ruth, Bertha, Julia*, Claudia Lorena, Mery Margoth, Laura Lola, Justa, Frida Magaly, Irene Juana, Claudia Gabriela, Emiliana, Hanz, Benita
