Nuevo Crecer Sullcataca Alta Group's story

The Communal Bank “Nuevo Crecer Sullcataca Alta” is part of the Copacabana agency. This group consists of nine members and is led by a Board of Directors in which Sra. Gladys is the president.

Gladys is 25 years old, in a common-law relationship, and has three children. She has a business of selling food. Gladys will use her loan to buy rice, noodles, and oil in bulk. She will acquire her supplies from wholesale vendors in the city of La Paz and then prepare and sell her dishes at her vending stall. By working in this manner, she is able to generate income to support her family. Her aspirations include expanding her business. Gladys asks that the lenders continue to trust her Communal Bank group.
