A loan of $7,025 helps a member to buy wool in bulk.


Jerusalem De Panamericana Group's story

“Jerusalem de Panamericana” communal bank will begin its thirty-first cycle in Pro Mujer, as part of the Panamericana regional hub. It is made up of eight members and is led by a board of directors with Tomasa as President.

The loan they will receive will help women microentrepreneurs such as Tomasa. Currently, she has a business selling blankets. She mentions that she learned this business through her own initiative several years ago.

The loan that she will receive now will be for increasing her capital purchasing wool in bulk. She will buy it from the women wholesalers in the city of La Paz, then make and sell the blankets in her sales space. This form of work allows her to generate resources to provide economic support to her family. She is married and has one child.

In this group: Tomasa, Reyna Lourdes, Teresa Gladys, Maria, Maria Virginia, Saturnina, Benita , Mary Abigail
