Kalajahuira Ag. 25 Gs Group's story

The group Kalajahuira Ag.25 Gs is composed of three members, all women. The group’s coordinator is Mrs. Susana, 45, who has three children. She brings vegetables from neighboring towns and sells them in one of the busiest markets in La Paz.

This is the second loan she receives from Emprender. Mrs. Susana will use it to invest in buying merchandise, such as carrots, potatoes and corn, now that the holidays are coming. She requested this loan because she lacks the capital.

Susana faces challenges like the weather. The rainy season greatly affects the agricultural lands and those that make a living from them. Prices have risen and there is a shortage of goods many times. She will use the loan to continue buying merchandise, for which she will pay her suppliers in advance, in order to be safe and be able to sell it during the upcoming holidays.

Her dream is to buy her own establishment, since she does not have now a fixed place in the market. In this way, it would be easier for her to sell.

In this group: Eulalia, Monica Celia, Susana
