Siempre Alegres (Forever Happy) Group's story

The "Siempre Alegres" (Forever Happy) association has found its business opportunity in the fruit business, because of the diversity of fruits produced in the Caranavi locality in the Province of La Paz. They buy products from the producers, then, in some cases, sell them retail and in other cases, convert the fruit into very rich natural juices and nectars that are sold in the markets of the city of El Alto.

The "Siempre Alegres" association meets in the Villa Adela town center, located in the city of El Alto. Felipa Agostopa is the group leader. They have been working with the Pro-Mujer (Pro-Woman) institution for the last seven years, and the economic situation of the members has noticeably improved since they have received the help of this institution. Currently they want to increase their sales, for which they need increased capital to purchase larger quantities of fruit.

In this group: Felipa, Isabel, Rosa, Maxima, Teodora, Hortencia, Benita, Gladys, Cornelia, Julia*, Veronica, Juana
