A loan of $7,950 helps a member to buy canned good wholesale.


Luna Group's story

The Luna communal bank will begin its tenth cycle with Pro Mujer as part of the Copacabana regional center. It is comprised of eight members and led by a board of directors. Eugenia is the president.

The loan that they are taking out will benefit small businesswomen where Eugenia is a member. She currently has a business in sales, which is a grocery store. She says that she learned this business on her own initiative several years ago.

The loan she will now take out is to increase capital to buy canned goods wholesale. She will get them from the wholesale vendors in the city of La Paz. She will later sell them at her sales space. This way of working allows her to generate resources to support her family financially. She is in a common-law marriage and has five children.

In this group: Eugenia, Maxima , Clemente, Gregoria , Elena , Elsa , Nieves , Teresa
