A loan of $3,250 helped a member to buy socks for resale.


Castillito De Arena Group's story

The “Banca de Emprendimiento Castillito de Arena” is a new bank where its members are involved in different things, including food sales. Its members are close and know each other very well. Claudia is the group’s president and sells socks and candy from her stall in a very well known La Paz fair. Having lived carefully for the past 20 years, amid life’s difficulties, she has learned to get ahead with her husband’s backing. She will use the money from this loan to buy merchandise, like socks in bulk. She wants to eventually buy some land where she can have a house built, because it’s risky to live where she lives now. She is a hard working woman who is very grateful to the institution for the support it has given.
