Dinamarca - 26 Group's story

The Entrepreneurs' Bank "DINAMARCA – 26" is made up of eight members, which includes five women and three men who all are involved in different types of businesses. The president of the bank is named Jenny, and she is very young, since she is only 19 years old. She works selling fruits nad vegetables at her place of business, which is located in the zone of Sopocachi in the city of La Paz. This loan will be her third with the institution.

Jenny will use this loan to buy a place of business, since the place she currently has is a rental, and also to buy fruits and vegetables that are in season in bulk to stock her sales point. Jenny has faced challenges in her business, like having to get up very early to buy the fruits and vegetables because she buys them from the trucks that arrive from the different valleys that provide these products to the city. Another of her hardships is the competition that she faces, but she works very very hard to improve her quality of life. She will use the benefits of this to continue buying vegetables for the business, and she feels happy and thankful for the opportunity given to her and to her compatriots in this group, and notes that the majority of them are young and entrepreneurial people.

In this group: Jenny Pamela, Rosmery, Isidora, Uva Ruby, Leonardo Fabio, Mijael Gonzalo, Pedro Milton, Maria Eugenia
