A loan of $4,625 helps a member to purchase laboratory instruments in bulk.

Altiplano Group’s story

The communal loan group Altiplano will begin its first loan cycle with Pro Mujer as part of the Centro Focal Alto Lima. It is made up of nine members and is led by officers of whom Martha is the president.

The loan that they will get will benefit the small micro-entrepreneurs of whom Martha is one. Currently she has a business selling laboratory instruments. She says that she learned this business at her own initiative some years ago.

The loan that she will get now will be to increase her capital, purchasing laboratory instruments in bulk, which she will get from the wholesalers in the city of La Paz.

This type of work allows her to generate resources to support her family economically since she is married and has eight children.

In this group: Martha , Yoseline , Erika Bolivia , Monica , Santusa , Yola , Kely Alejandra, Agustin, Rosa
