A loan of $3,375 helped a member to buy a variety of costume jewellery to stock up his market stall.

Los Intocables - 32 Group's story

The communal bank "Los Intocables - 32" has ten members - seven women and three men. The president of the bank is 24 year old Diego who is single and sells costume jewellery and other accessories for women at his stall in one of Cochabamba's markets. This loan is his first with the bank and Diego will use it to buy costume jewellery merchandise to stock up his stall. His reason for applying for this loan is that he needs to expand and satisfy his customers by offering a variety of products. Diego faces the challenge of increasing his customer base and he will use the profits to improve his standard of living.
