The "VENGADORAS" ["Avengers"] communal bank will start its third lending cycle in Pro Mujer as part of the Central regional office. It is composed of ten members and led by a board of directors, of which Luz is the president. The businesses run by the members of the communal bank are varied; among them are food sales, fuel sales, a hair salon, candy sales, and garment sales.

Luz states that she joined Pro Mujer one year ago, coming in on the invitation of a friend who is a member of the institution. After the flood that occurred in Trinidad, many small businesses were affected because they lost a large portion of their merchandise and work equipment. Luz says that after that natural disaster, which affected her family, she decided to return to her economic activity since it is her only source of productivity. Her business is food sales. She points out that during the last year, she has won more clientele with the service that she gives her customers, a strategy that she learned in Pro Mujer.

The loan that she is now taking out is to pay for a sales space where she wants to sell her products, as she has an outstanding balance. Afterward, this place will be the site of Luz's business. Working this way will allow her to generate resources to support her family, as she lives with her partner and has one child.

When asked what she likes about Pro Mujer, she responds that she likes the support and the training that the institution is offering her to reestablish her business.
