Violetas Group's story

The association, "Violetas," has worked with the Pro-Mujer family for approximately 10 years. They meet at the Panamericana center located in the city of El Alto. Almost all of them have rather large families. They tell us that they need to make bigger incomes to be able to support their families economically. The majority of this group is dedicated to craftwork. Martha, for example, braids straw and makes decorations and light furniture with this material. Others weave macramé or embroider tableclothes. The Violetas association wants to expand its sales to obtain bigger profits. This is why they are requesting bigger credits to be able to purchase a larger quantity of supplies. After reaching their sales goals, they are sure that they will improve their economic situations.

In this group: Martha, Lucia, Carmen, Antonia, Cristina*, Delfina, Isabel, Bertha*, Julia, Hipolito, Benita, Liliana, Maria
