Sartawi Group's story

The partners of the group "Sartawi" are represented by Mrs. María Victoria and thirteen partners, four male and the rest female, friends and neighbors from the same area. Most of them are dedicated to the sale of garments, chickens, and spare parts for vehicles at the central market of the town of El Alto. There is always competition related to selling products, especially selling garments as they have to be adequate for the season and in style not to lose clients. The loan will be spent on increasing the amount of merchandise and change it for products fit for summer and raincoats for the rainy season, products that are most popular among the clients. The partners are experienced with solidarity groups as they have participated within Fundación Agrocapital in other groups and they know how it works as well as the required responsibility to repay punctually and reach the objective to improve and increase their income so that their children may have a better education and a better life quality.

In this group: Maria Victoria, Victoria, Ana Bertha*, Juan Felix, Juan Carlos, Juan Carlos, Francisca Juana, Jhovina Anahi, Jose Moises*, Dayana Ninett, Graciela, Elizabet, Fanny Mercedes
