Yungueñitas 27 Group's story

The communal bank YUNGUEÑITAS 27 is made up of 10 members, seven women and three men, who have different businesses. The president of the group is still Paulina. She is 69 years old and has the same business knitting alpaca sweaters and blankets for women. She has her workshop and home in the Pedro Domingo Murillo neighborhood. She tells us that her last loan went well and she used it to purchase wool. She is going to use it to purchase alpaca wool wholesale to knit sweaters and blankets. Towards the end of the year and during Christmas she has a lot of sales. She also delivers orders to different markets in the city of La Paz. She is happy and grateful to Kiva lenders for the opportunity they give her to grow her business.

In this group: Paulina, Maribel, Alisson, Hector, Elena, Ruben Alejandro, Miriam Antonieta, Bilma, Monica Nieves, Sergio
