Story

Banco Los Andes ProCredit S.A.
Ms. Lucia Quisbert and her family dreamed of creating a factory making burners for gas stoves in their town in the Bolivian Andes. Although they were able to begin production on their own in 1995, they were unable to invest in the capital that would allow them to produce on a larger scale. Ms. Lucia’s goal was not only to have a successful business of her own, but to create more employment opportunities for the members of her community. In 2001 she and her family turned to Banco Los Andes ProCredit to finance the purchase of their first industrial machinery. With the help of Banco Los Andes ProCredit, Lucia and her family have increased their production to nine-times their pre-loan level. Full Story
