6 De Marzo Group's story

The "March 6th" association has belonged to the Pro-Mujer family for more than year. Every two weeks they meet in the Panamericana neighborhood in the city of El Alto.

The group currently has 15 members and they have proven to be an organized group in terms of their loan payments. The majority of the group members are married with children. The children help their parents with their businesses since the earnings only cover their basic necessities and do not provide enough to hire assistants.

The association includes different businesses such as food sales, clothing sales, and auto parts sales, but the primary business is the sale of vegetables and potatoes, which are sold in the Ceja market (located in the central zone in El Alto) and in other markets around the city. The March 6th association needs capital to buy larger quantities of products to increase their earnings and ensure that their households are economically stable.

In this group: Nancy, Fransisco, Basilia, Isabel, Olga, Hilaria, Nely, Martha, Santusa*, Eduarda, Rosa, Anastasia*, Sofia, Delia, Elizabeth
