A loan of $4,425 helped a member to buy fabric and thread for the making of skirts.

22-Amanecer De Villa Tunari Group's story

The Bank of Entrepreneurship 22-AMANECER DE VILLA TUNARI has eight members, of which six are women and two are men, who make their livings in different activities.

The president of the bank es Martha, 29, who is single with four children ages 10, 8, 6 and 2. She makes a living sewing skirts for the "Cholitas" (members of a Bolivian indigenous movement) in her own workshop which is found in the Villa Tunari zone of the city of El Alto.

This is her first loan cycle within the Institution. Martha is going to use the loan to purchase fabric for the making of skirts. The reason she is requesting this loan is the large demand she has. She has orders to deliver to different markets, and lacks capital for the purchase of fabric and thread.

Martha faces challenges in her business such as the lack of equipment and sometimes a lack of material when they give her wholesale orders, depending on the work she has to do. She is going to use her profits to buy fabric.

Martha is a hard-working person whose wish is to have a big workshop and hire employees, and that way she can teach young people the trade of apparel making.

In this group: Martha, Fidelia, Ruth Nancy, Juan Marcos, David, Rose Mary, Yesica, Judith Vanesa
