Naciones Unidas Group's story

The Naciones Unidas (United Nations) group bank consists of 12 women and 2 men from the Munaypata zone of El Alto, Bolivia. The group members are involved in various businesses, some selling athletic wear, sweets, or clothing, others sewing and embroidering clothing or operating neighborhood stores. Most plan to use their Kiva loan to purchase more materials for their businesses.


The group is in its third loan cycle and is incorporating a few new members, all with the same commitment to work evident in those who founded the group. In Naciones Unidas' first meeting of this loan cycle, president Eva C. S. emphasized certain group qualities that should be taken very seriously, including punctuality, responsibility, and above all, the camaraderie that must exist within the group, which meets at Sra. C.'s house.

In this group: Eva Luisa, Carmen Rosa, Magdalena, Yolanda, Getrudes, Julieta Tomasa, Clotilde Reina, Rosario, Ximena Margarita*, Omar Angel*, Mariana, Consuelo, Juan Jose, Julia Jacinta
