Rosales Group's story

"Rosales" is the name of a group of 10 women, working together with the institution Pro-Mujer. They meet every 14 days in the center of the Andes in the city of El Alto. This group has a variety of trades. For example, one woman sells plants, Emiliana weaves wool sweaters, and the others focus on making clothes such as sweatshirts and sports jackets. These products are sold retail in the street market 16 de Julio in the city of El Alto. These women need capital for the purchase of basic materials in order to increase production and sell their products at wholesale. In this way, they can generate more profit, continue improving their affairs, and economically support their families.

In this group: Valeriana, Idelfonso, Nieves, Emiliana, Lucy, Justa, Margarita, Nieves, Arminda, Victoria
