Flor De Canela Group's story

The “Flor de Canela” association is comprised of 15 women eager to improve their small businesses. They meet every two weeks in the center of Villa Adela, located on Bolivia Avenue in the city of El Alto. The group’s activities are diverse, some making handcrafted knits, others make clothing and also dedicate themselves to preparing and selling food. Lucrecia, for example, makes beef and pork sausages.

They all affirm that they need the loans to expand their enterprises, with the assurance of making more sales and therefore earning a better income for their families.

In this group: Gavina, Teodosia, Elvira, Julia, Rosa, Lucrecia, Leonor, Teodora*, Luisa, Celia, Nancy, Teodocia, Reyna, Gladys, Getrudis
