21 De Mayo Group's story

The “21 de mayo” (May 21st) group is based in the Villa Tejada neighbourhood of the city of El Alto. This group has been working in conjunction with Pro-Mujer for more than 4 years. The members of the group tell us that they lack money to pay for their household expenses and the rent for their businesses as they have large families. Most of the members own neighbourhood store which offer a variety of products. They are highly motivated to improve their sales by buying a variety of products in bulk, thereby generating greater profits which will allow them to buy their own homes.

In this group: Ruth, Elvira, Maria, Carmen, Jaqueline, Carlos, Remedios, Filadelfia, Andrea, Jesusa, Juana, Blanca, Ximena
