Luz Viva Group's story

Making lunches and snacks is the main activity that the 'Luz Viva' ('Living Light') association does. They belong to the focal center in Villa Tejado and with the help of their credit assistant they are very organized in the way in which they work in a group. They make all their food using fresh produce which means they must buy things daily as they don't have enough refrigerator space. After making foods they take them to the offices and food stalls which have ordered them in the city of El Alto. The 'Luz Viva' association needs to buy bigger refrigerators with enough room to keep all the products necessary for making their lunches.

In this group: Tania, Celia, Hermenegilda, Marina, Dominga, Nestor, Elsa
