Bartolina Sisa Group's story

The "Bartolina Sisa" association comprises 15 members; it is located in the Santiago II neighbourhood of the city of El Alto.

The group members engage in a variety of activities, including the sale of sweets, and the sale of flowers, but they principally cook and sell food. They prepare varied lunches which they sell every day; this provides a small revenue to cover the day-to-day expenses of their homes and businesses.

Now they need more capital to expand production. They plan to buy larger quantities of raw materials with a view to increasing revenues and improving their living standards.

In this group: Lidia, Flora, Petrona, Antonieta, Alberta, Sonia, Jhonny, Isabel, Alina, Lidia, Patricia, Juana*, Gloria, Maribel, Santusa
