A loan of $6,175 helped a member to buy motors.

Bola 8 Group's story

The Bola 8 will start their 16th cycle with Pro Mujer as part of Los Andes regional office. It is comprised of eight members, and it is run by a board of directors, which Odaliz heads. The businesses that the members of the communal bank carry out are varied. Among them we have: selling motors, selling shoes, selling auto parts, making curtains, and selling scarves and blankets.

Odaliz says that she has been a member of a communal bank in Pro Mujer for 15 years. She joined on her own initiative. She currently has a business selling motors, which she has been working at for years.

The loan that she is now taking out is to buy motors, which she will get in the country of Chile. She will later sell them wholesale to the people at the fairs in the city of El Alto. This business helps her support her family. She is in a common-law marriage and has two children.

When asked what she likes about Pro Mujer she answered that she enjoys the health services.
