Amazonas Ii Group's story

The “Amazonas II” communal bank will start its 18th cycle in Pro Mujer as part of the German Busch Focal Center. It has 8 members led by a governing board presided over by Ssucy. The communal bank members carry out a variety of businesses among which are: spare parts sales, tailor shop, catering, scarf knitting, butcher shop, infant wear sales, bedspread manufacturing and American clothes sales.

The loan they’ll take out will benefit small micro businesswomen like Ssucy. She indicates that she’s been part of Pro Mujer for ten years having joined thanks to an invitation from a friend who is a member of the institution. She currently works selling meat, a business she learned 30 years ago when she noticed that her area needed a butcher.

The loan she’ll take out now is to increase capital. She will buy a meat grinder from wholesalers in the city of El Alto and then install in in her sales space. This way of working makes it possible for her to generate income needed to support her home as best as possible for she’s in a common law relationship and has five children. When asked what she likes about Pro Mujer, she answers the health area and spending time with her fellow members.
