Solidaridad Aa Group's story

The Solidaridad AA group consists of three men and 11 women who live in Sucre, in south-central Bolivia. Most of the group members are mothers of young children. They are involved in a variety of economic activities: sewing skirts and athletic clothing; selling cell phones; knitting shawls and sweaters; selling cookies, fruits and vegetables; driving taxis; selling beauty products and cosmetics; and running a neighborhood store. Most of the group members have between one and seven years of experience in their respective businesses, with the exception of Angela and Dora (who knit shawls and sweaters and sew athletic clothing, respectively), who both have more than fifteen years of experience.

Most of the group members will use their Kiva loans to buy more bulk merchandise to sell or to buy more raw materials for making clothing. This is the group's first loan. Their loan officer describes them as a very responsible and entrepreneurial group.

In this group: Juana, Laureana, Guillermo Ronal, Angela, Carmen, Marcela, Ivanna, Becky, Adela, Dora, Alfredo, Sonia Paola, Felipa, Anibal
