A loan of $7,250 helps a member to buy paper, glossy ink, and staples wholesale.

Candy Group's story

The "Candy" communal bank will begin its fifth loan cycle with Pro Mujer as part of the Third of May regional center. It is composed of eight members and is led by a board of directors where Señora Janneth is the president.

The loan that they will take out will benefit these micro-entrepreneurs, of whom Señora Janneth is one. She now has a printing business. She lets it be known that she learned this business on her own initiative a number of years ago.

The loan that she will take out now will be used to increase her capital to buy paper, glossy ink, and staples wholesale, which she will acquire from the wholesale vendors of the city of La Paz, and later she will sell the products in her sales space. This form of work allows her to generate resources to support her family economically, since she is married and has five children.

In this group: Janneth, Ruth Corina , Carla Blanca, Natalia Sofia, Nelly Rosario, Daniel Andres , Veronica, Katerine Jenny
