A loan of $4,750 helped a member to buy electronic household appliances.


Bolivianitas - 26 Group's story

The communal bank of Bolivantes-26 is made up of nine members, all of them women. The president of the bank is Señora Felipa. She is 53 years old and has two children who are 14 and 22 years old and are studying in high school and college. Felipa makes a living by selling electronic household appliances from her shop which is located in her home in the area of Vino Tinto. At night she also sells salchipapas (a kind of kebab) in the same area.

The purpose of the loan is to buy electronic household appliances in order to stock up her business. Señora Felipa is a hard-working person who has experience in the business. She is very grateful to the institution for the support it offered to her because this is the only work she has to take care of her family. Also, she is grateful for the support from her group-mates because in many cases they take care of their families alone.

In this group: Angelica, Rosa Hortencia, Filomena, Felipa , Soledad, Albina, Adriana , Graciela, Luz Consuelo
