Las Pankaritas Group's story

Communal bank Las Pankaritas, belonging to the regional office Copacabana, will start their third loan cycle with Pro Mujer. The group consists of 8 members and is managed by the board presided over by Santusa.

The money they will receive will benefit small micro entrepreneurs, Santusa being one of them. At the moment she has a business selling cheese. She reckons that she learnt the job from her own initiative several years ago.

Santusa is now asking for a loan to raise the capital for purchase of cattle from merchants in La Paz. It will serve as a mean of production because she will be able to sell milk and cheese.

Being single the work allows Santusa generate income to support her family economically.

In this group: Santusa Valeria, Rosa , Clementina, Victoria , Julia , Nicolas, Mateo, Elvira
