A loan of $7,175 helps a member to buy clothing wholesale.


Emoticones Group's story

The Emoticones communal bank, part of the 3 de Mayo agency, is made up of eight members and run by a board of directors of which María is the president.

María's single and has two children. She has a business selling clothing. With her loan she's going to buy clothing wholesale from the wholesale vendors in the city of La Paz, then sell it in her sales stall. This job enables her to earn income to support her family. Her goal is to expand her business.

María asks that you can once again have confidence in her communal bank.
