A loan helped a member to buy wholesale clothing to sell.


Sartasiñani Group's story

The Sartasiñani Communal Bank, as part of the Agencia German Busch, is made up of eight members who are friends and neighbors from their area. It is led by a board of directors with Maria as the president.

Maria is 38 years old. She is married with three children. Currently she has a business selling clothing, men's and women's stockings. She says that she learned this business a long time ago.

The loan she is now taking will be for working capital to buy wholesale clothing that she will buy from La Paz wholesalers and then later sell from her sales stand. This way of working permits her to generate resources to support her family financially. Her aspirations are that her children turn out to be professionals and to have a large sales stand. Maria asks that you trust their communal bank once again.
