Bolivianitas - 26 Group's story

The communal bank Bolivianitas 26 is made up of eleven members, nine women and two men.

The bank president is Angelica. She is 40 years old and has two children who are 12 and 19 years old who are studying at school and university. She works selling breakfasts, an activity that she does every day from her facility in her own home in the area of Vino Tinto, preparing and offering her customers various breakfast dishes. This activity is her main source of income for her and her family. She started this together with another person that helps her in preparations and in attending to the clients.

The loan is to be used to purchase wholesale furniture and to expand her business. Angelica is a hard working person with many years experience in this business of selling breakfasts.She is very grateful with the institution for the support given to her as this is her only activity with which she maintains her family and she is also grateful for the help of her friends in the group as in many cases they are the sole support of their families.
