Triunfadoras Del Santuario Group's story

The “TRIUNFADORAS DEL SANTUARIO” communal bank will start its first cycle with the Panamericana Focal Center. It has 14 members and led by a governing board chaired by Julia.

The businesses the members carry out are varied. Among them are: vest making, sale of soft drinks, Vicuña wool sales, food sales, grocery store, vegetable sales, blanket weaving, construction, clothing sales, sale of beds and pressure cookers, comforter sales and coca leaf sales.

Julia’s business is selling fast food. To buy her ingredients she goes to the Extranca de Rio Seco market and she does her sales at the #8 Ex-Stop (both places in the city of El Alto). She will use the loan to expand her business.

She is 39 years old, married and has a daughter who helps her in the business every day.

When she’s asked what she likes about Pro Mujer she answers that she likes to learn and the organization.

In this group: Julia, Paulina, Maria, Felix Alcides, Salome, Ricardina Benita, Faustina, Luisa, Lidia, Francisca, Sabina, Lucy, Ortencia, Rosmeri
