Triunfadoras De Los Andes Group's story

The “Triunfadoras De Los Andes” [Victors of the Andes] Association has belonged to the Pro-Mujer family for more than nine years, fulfilling 18 credit cycles. The association is located in the city of El Alto in the Andes, and right now has 10 active members. They have demonstrated themselves to be organized in meeting their loan payments.

There are various businesses within the association such as food production and sales, and sewing and sales of jackets, but one of the most unique activities that the women carry out are the making of beautiful stuffed bears of different shapes and sizes, that are then distributed to gift shops in many areas of the city or sold through street vendors.

The Triunfadoras de Los Andes Association indicate that they need more capital so that they can purchase higher quality raw materials. By doing this, their products will also be of better quality. In this way they will acquire better clients and thus obtain greater earnings, so they can achieve their sole objective of improving their economic situation.
