Amigas De Fe Y Alegria Group's story

Justina Mayta, age 32, lives in the German Busch area of the city of El Alto. She has been selling fish for approximately three years. She has her own place where she sells. It is in Río Seco in front of the gas station. She needs the loan to buy merchandise.

The other members of this communal bank have economic activities like selling fish, hats, food, clothes, footwear, knitting “polleras” (skirts worn by indigenous women), weaving carpets, or making blankets. They all need the loan to invest in their businesses and to improve them.
