74-Las Positivas Group's story

The communal bank "74-Positivas" is made up of ten people, 8 women and 2 men. They make their livings in different businesses. The president of the bank is Mrs. Blanca. She lives in the Bendek neighborhood and works selling "anticuchos", [a very traditional Bolivian food similar to kebabs, prepared with cow giblets and potatoes].

The borrower lives in a family home and she has been developing the sale of "anticuchos" for three years. She has had good earnings from the sales and she is expanding her business to have even greater sales. She is requesting a loan to purchase products such as potatoes, peanuts, and meats for the preparation of "anticuchos".

The borrower appreciates this institution for the opportunity given to her and at the same time appreciates how quickly she was assisted. This loan allows her to improve her business and thus improve the quality of life for her whole family.
