Lluvia De Oro Group's story

The Lluvia de Oro (Rain of Gold) Group is comprised of ten people. Maria Tatiana represents the group. This group is characterized as being people brought together from the east but who have lived in Cochabamba for many years. They are very united and hard-working people.

Maria Tatiana has one child, and he attends the university. She is married, and her husband supports her work. He helps her work in a Karaoke bar. They both run it on the week-ends. It generates income to support the family. Maria Tatiana’s greatest dream is to see her son become a profession. The loan is to remodel the Karaoke bar.

The rest of the members have businesses like selling underwear for women. They generally get it at the Brazilian border in order to deliver it to the wholesale market. Some members sell comforters and other types of clothing. Other members work in passenger transportation, making clothes, selling food, or the sale and repair of cell phones.

The level of competition in the market in which the members work is high. But, all of them know how to get ahead to get their daily income, which supports their families.

The group is in one more cycle, and they demonstrate punctuality and the desire to work to get their families ahead. They do this to give them a better quality of life and to be able to progress more each day.

In this group: Maria Tatiana, Raquel, Dayana, Fanny Gabriela, Jorge, Juan Carlos, Mauricio, Fatima, Giobanna, Teresa
