A loan of $5,975 helps a member to purchase clothing in bulk.

Eco Andino Group's story

The communal bank Eco Andino will begin its forty-first loan cycle with Pro Mujer, as part of the Centro Focal Alto Lima. It is made up of nine members and is led by officers of whom Albertina is president.

The loan that they will get will benefit the small micro-entrepreneurs of whom Albertina is one. Currently she has a business selling clothing. She states that she learned this business at her own initiative some years ago.

The loan that she will get now will be to increase her capital, purchasing clothing in bulk, which she will get from the wholesalers in the city of La Paz and will later sell in her sales space. This type of work allows her to generate resources to support her family economically since she is in a common-law marriage and has three children.
