A loan of $5,550 helped a member to buy cloth.

Amigas Por Siempre Group's story

The communal bank "Amigas por siempre" is starting its fourteenth loan cycle at the Andes regional office. There are eight members participating in this communal bank, where Aurelia is the president. The ladies' businesses are different, including retail, production, and services, handicrafts and fur trade.

Aurelia is a 37-year-old woman, married and the mother of three children. She has been a member of communal banks for seven years, working ever since in the skirt making business.

The loan she will now receive is for increasing her merchandise (purchase of skirt cloth) that she will buy in the city of El Alto and after making the skirts she will sell them by request to stores, every day.

When we asked her what she liked most about "Por Mujer" she mentioned that she liked the training.

In this group: Aurelia, Margarita, Juana Gloria, Maria Eugenia, Yaneth, Rosmery , Marcelina , Emiliana
