22-Virgen De Urkupina Group's story

The 22-VIRGEN DE URKUPINA Communal Bank is made up of nine members, seven women and two men. The president of the bank is Sra. Roció, who is 28 years old with two children, who are 13 and 11 years old.

Sra. Roció sells military clothing and implements. She has her store in the Carrasco area of the city of La Paz, where she sells her goods. This loan is her sixth from Emprendor and she is a long-time client. She will use the loan to purchase military clothing wholesale and thus provide variety in the clothing she offers her customers and increase her earnings. Her reason for requesting the loan is to continue improving her business. She will use the profits to continue buying military clothing and implements.

Roció is a very hardworking person and happy for the opportunity provided her and other members of her group, since some are the sole support of their families.

In this group: Sandra, Rocio Mayra, Elvira, Juan, Viviana, Consuelo, Janet Jimena, Brian Rodrigo, Yhesica Miriam
