The communal bank “Libertad” or ‘Liberty’ is starting on its first loan cycle in the Germán Busch focal center. This communal bank has the participation of new members who will be taking out loans for the first time. The board of directors for this loan cycle has Asunta as president, Martha as treasurer, and Alicia as secretary. The women’s businesses are all different. They include a neighborhood store and sales of belts, coffee, meat, sweaters, cosmetics, and games.

The president, Asunta, is a young woman who lives with her partner and five children. As for her business, Asunta has a business selling belts. She purchases wholesale belts and sells them retail in the Ceja market in the city of El Alto.
