A loan of $6,275 helps a member to buy cattle wholesale.

Las Rosas De Cala Cala Group's story

The “Las Rosas de Cala Cala” communal bank will begin its third cycle in Pro Mujer, as a part of the Copacabana Focal Center. It is made up of nine members and is led by a board of directors, of which Rosa is the president.

The loan they will take out will benefit the micro-business women, including Rosa. Right now, she has a cheese selling business. She says that she learned this business on her own initiative several years ago.

The loan she will take out now is to increase her capital by buying cattle wholesale, which she will acquire from wholesalers in the city of La Paz. Later, the cattle will serve as a means of production and she can sell milk and cheese. This work allows her to generate resources for her family, as she is married and has four children.
