Las Intocables Group's story

The “Las Intocables” (The Untouchables) communal bank has 12 members ten of which are women and two are men; they are in different lines of work. The bank president is Rosalía, 31. She’s married and has two school age children. She works knitting sweaters and alpaca blankets for women. Her workshop is at home located in the Pucarani zone. This loan is her first sequence in the institution and Rosalía will use it to buy alpaca wool at wholesale to knit sweaters and blankets because sales are very good these days. She delivers orders to various markets in the city of El Alto. Her reason for requesting this loan is to increase working capital. The business challenge Rosalía faces is stocking her merchandise and will use profits to continue buying her supplies for knitting sweaters at wholesale. Thirteen people appear in the photo because one of the member’s sisters came to the meeting with her.
