A loan helped a member to expand her business.


04-Santa Vera Cruz Group's story

The communal bank, "Santa Vera Cruz", as part of the Villa Copacabana Agency, is made up of eight members and is headed by a general committee where Maria is the President.

Maria is 53 years old and married with two children. She has a business selling clothing for women and children. With the loan, she will buy items of clothing wholesale which she will get from wholesale vendors in the city of La Paz. Then she will sell her products in her store. This way of working allows her to generate resources to support her family financially.

Her dreams are to expand her business and move her family forward. Maria asked that you trust in her communal bank again.

In this group: Maria Luisa, Anna Belen, Flavio Donald, Carla Andrea, Sandra Benedicta, Yoselin, Elizabeth Asuncion, Maribel Cristina
