Waliki Sartasiñani Group's story

The “WALIKI SARTASIÑANI” communal bank will begin its fourth cycle in Pro Mujer, as a part of the Los Andes center. It is made up of nine members and is led by a board of directors headed by Eleuteria. The businesses that the members of the communal bank run are varied. Among them we have: selling paintings, selling api [a traditional drink], weaving blankets and macrame, selling fish, selling and making clothes, selling food, selling skirts and blankets.

Eleuteria indicates that two years ago she became a member of a communal bank in Pro Mujer. She joined at the invitation of one of the other members. right now she has a business selling clothes, something she has been doing for years.

The loan she is taking out now is to buy merchandise (to buy clothes) that she will acquire from the markets in the city of El Alto and later sell at her sales locale. This business helps her support her family. She is single and has a son.

When asked what she likes about Pro Mujer, she answers that she likes the trainings on the topics of health and credit.
