Union 5 De Mayo Group's story

The communal bank “Union 5 de Mayo” is associated with the Villa Adela agency. It includes eight members and is run by a board of directors, with Carmen as president.

Carmen is divorced and has two children. She has a business selling vegetables. With the loan, she will buy vegetables in bulk from the wholesale vendors in the city of La Paz. Then she will sell them in her sales space. This method of working permits her to generate income to support her family financially. She aspires to her children becoming professionals. Carmen asks that you again trust in her communal bank.
