A loan of $7,525 helps a member to purchase wool in bulk.


Estrellas Doradas Group's story

The communal bank Estrellas Doradas will begin its third loan cycle with Pro Mujer, as part of the Centro Focal Alto Lima. It is made up of ten members and is led by officers of whom Antonia is the president.

The loan that they will get will benefit the small micro-entrepreneurs of whom Antonia is one. Currently, she has a business selling shawls. 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 with the purchase of wool in bulk, which she will get from the wholesalers in the city of La Paz and later, after production, will sell in her sales space. This type of work allows her to generate resources to support her family economically since she is married and has two children.

In this group: Antonia , Lucia, Maria Elena, Nelly, Bertha, Adelaida , Lidia, Nelly, Santusa, Veronica
