Wally Suma Group's story

The Juan Pablo II focal center is located in the city of El Alto, and in this center the association “Wally Suma” (which in the Aymara language means “Rich Enough”) meets. As most are married with an average of four children, the association members have found it necessary to have their own businesses which allow them to provide daily income for their homes. Within the group the majority have individual businesses, most of which sell food and clothes. They travel to Desaguadero (a town in La Paz) bringing wholesale merchandise to sell and also buying products there to sell at retail value at fairs in the city. The Wally Suma association needs more capital to increase sales. By buying greater quantities of merchandise they will generate more income that will enable them to cover their basic needs.
