Brillantes Group's story

Villa Adela is a neighborhood located in the city of El Alto, Bolivia. This is where you will find the "Brillantes" group, a very cheerful, friendly and above all united communal bank. The group meets once every two weeks at 12:30pm. Each member runs their own business in a responsible and organized fashion. One of the group's main concerns is children's health. The group members make and sell orthopedic devices for children, like shoe inserts and hip braces. They fill orders for both hospitals and individuals. The group is requesting this loan to buy materials to make the products they sell in order to sell more and generate more income to provide for their families.

In this group: Melby, Irene, Lidia, Mercedez, Martha*, Eloyza, Jannet, Jesus, Maribel, Faviola, Luis, Raquel, Gimena, Fatima*, Jimena, Segundina, Angelica*
