La Bolita - 26 Group's story

The Bank of Entrepreneurship LA BOLITA – 26 is composed of eight members, of which six are women and two are men. They make their livings doing different activities. The president of the Bank is Karina. She is 25 and has a three-year-old son.

She makes a living selling breakfasts. She sells tea, coffee, yerba mate, sandwiches, and other things in one of the markets in the zone of Tembladerani.

This loan is her first loan cycle within the Institution. Karina is going to use the loan to buy ingredients, such as wholesale sugar, tea, and coffee, for the preparation of her breakfasts.

The reason she is requesting this loan is that she lacks capital for the purchase of ingredients. Karina faces challenges in her business such as the competition she has in the market of breakfast sales, and she is going to use her profits to continue increasing her working capital and improving her sales stand.

Her wish for her business is to try to purchase another stand and expand her business.
