Luz Viva Ii Group's story

The association "Living Light II" is the focal center of the village of Tejada. It is headed by Laureana Q., who has worked together with Kiva partner Pro-Mujer for approximately 10 years. The women say that when they have had problems with their companions sometimes they have needed to become economically independent, but they didn't have any capital to start a business of their own. Now, thanks to the group, some of them are dedicated to making and selling food, but the majority of them make a living selling various clothing items for all ages. These products are sold mainly in the Tihuanacu market located in the city of El Alto. The women affirm they need more capital for the purchase of these products in larger quantities so they can be able to travel to the country's interior and sell their clothing items so they can generate more income.

In this group: Laureana, Emma, Guillermina, Elsa, Monica, Juana, Agustina, Hortencia, Eusebia, Roxana, Ruth, Nieves
