Las Guindas De Pantini Group's story

The "Las Guindas De Pantini" lending group, as part of the Villa Copacabana Agency, is composed of eight members who are neighbors and friends from the same area. The group is led by a board of directors of which Emma is the president.

Emma is in a common-law marriage and has three children. Currently she has a business selling blanket fabric. She learned this business many years ago.

The loan the she will now take is to grow her capital in order to buy wool in bulk from the wholesale vendors in the city of La Paz. Then she will prepare and sell it in her space. This work enables her to earn the income to financially support her family. Her goal is to expand her business. She asks that you continue to trust in her lending group.

In this group: Juanito, Petrona Maria, Juan Irineo, Fabiola, Sebastiana, Emma, Jose Luis, Salustiana
