A loan helped a member to buy wholesale canned goods.

Altiplano Group's story

The loan group "Altiplano" is part of the Villa Tejada Agency. It is composed of 9 members and is managed by a board of directors where Flora is the president.

Flora is 70-years old, married and has four children. She has a small neighborhood store. With the loan, she will buy wholesale canned goods that she will get from the wholesale vendors in the city of La Paz. Afterwards, she will sell them in her store.

This form of work allows her to get an income to support her family economically. Her goal is to grow her business. Flora is asking for people to trust in her loan group again.
