A loan of $2,325 helped a member to buy pure silver.

Flor De Illimani Group's story

The “FLOR DE ILLIMANI” communal bank will start its first cycle in Pro Mujer as part of the Juan Pablo II Focus Center. It has 8 members and Graciela is President. The businesses of the women are varied. Among them are commerce, production and services.

Graciela, communal bank President, states that this is the first time she’s participated in a communal bank and in Pro Mujer. She has had a silversmith business that she learned from her mother for five years.

She will use the loan to buy pure silver from Leticia Jewelry Store that she will resell weekends. This method of working allows her to earn income to support her family since she’s married and has two children.

When she’s asked what she likes about Pro Mujer she answers that she likes the training and the health services.

In this group: Graciela, Mariela, Antonia, Eusebia Cristina, Raimunda, Olga, Miriam Emma, Julia
