A loan of $4,550 helped a member to buy traditional clothing for women wholesale.

Sajama 27 Group's story

The Sajama 27 entrepreneurship bank is formed by eight members, seven women and one man. They make a living from a variety of businesses. The president of the bank is Cristina, who is 60 years old and married with two children who are already grown. She makes a living by selling traditional clothing for women. She sells her products at various markets in the city of El Alto.

This loan is her first sequence in the institution. Cristina is going to use this loan to buy clothing wholesale and thus stock her business. Her motivation for asking for this loan is to increase her merchandise. Cristina faces challenges in her business, such as competition, and she is going to use her profits to keep buying merchandise. In this way she will generate more financial earnings. She feels happy and grateful for this and for her fellow group members, as in many cases people have to get their families ahead on their own.

In this group: Cristina, Jhoana, Angelica, Andrea Venancia, Olga Vitnera, Eunicia Zonia, Ever Wilmer, Gladys Jhanet
