A loan helped a member to purchase wholesale shoes.


Estrellitas Group's story

The group "Estrellitas" is part of the Copacabana Agency. It is made up of nine members who are friends and neighbors of their area and is directed by a board of directors where Nancy is president.

Nancy is in a common law marriage and has two children. Currently she has a business selling shoes, and makes it known that she learned this business long ago.

The loan she is taking out now will be used to increase her capital to purchase wholesale shoes. She will acquire them from wholesale vendors in the city of La Paz, then sell them. This type of work allows her to generate resources to support her family financially. Her aspiration is to make her business grow. Nancy asks that you place trust in their communal bank once more.
