G Living Kiva Loan: $25
NYDIA CARRILLO Group
The “Chascañawi” association has been part of the Pro-Mujer family for more than 10 years. This association is based in the Senkata neighborhood, which is located along 6 de Marzo Avenue in the city of El Alto. There are currently 14 women who are members of the group, and they have proven themselves to be very responsible when it comes to repaying their loans and in their internal activities.
The association includes various businesses, but the majority of the women are merchants. Some, for example, sell socks, some earn a living making and selling cookies and pastries, while others sell vegetables, potatoes, and chuños (freeze-dried potatoes—a specialty of the Andes). The members of the Chascañawi association need loans so they can purchase more products and thus increase their sales.
