A loan of $2,050 helped a member to buy seasonal clothing in bulk.

Patino-Vc 25 Group's story

The solidarity group "Patino Communal Bank 25" has two members, both women. The group's coördinator is Celia who is sixty years old, married and has two children (both of whom are now independent). Celia makes a living selling clothes in the Los Yungas province of the city of La Paz. This loan is the third sequence with the institution. Celia will use it to invest in buying clothes in bulk. The reason she is applying for this loan is that she does not have enough capital. Celia is facing challenges to her business, such as competition and she will use the profits to continue buying seasonal clothing. Celia is a very hard-working person and she feels very happy and grateful to the institution for the support being provided.

In this group: Celia, Doris Elena
