Rositas De Final Castillo Group's story

“Rositas de Final Castillo” (Final Castillo Roses) is a group of nine women who meet at Juan Pablo II focus center. They got together recently in order to access a loan since they all need to increase their working capital. Each has a different production, service or commercial business.

One of the members is Florencia Amalia H., 48. She has sold clothing in various markets in El Alto for the last 10 years. She works from 7am until noon. Income from this business has made it possible for Florencia to raise her 6 children, three of whom are married and 3 who still are dependent on her.

Florencia needs the funds to buy merchandise, especially during this winter season when warm clothing is in great demand.

In this group: Florencia Amalia, Oscar Javier, Cristina Wilma, Olga Tereza, Francisca, Nelly Estela, Felipa Virginia, Viviana Victoria, Nela Blanca
