Mujeres Creciendo Group's story

The association named “Mujeres Creciendo” (“Growing Women”) has been a part of the Pro-Mujer family for more than ten years. This association belongs to the focal center of Juan Pablo II, located in the Ferropetrol zone of the city of El Alto. To date, they have fourteen members that have demonstrated themselves as an organized group with regard to their payments and internal activities.

Various types of businesses exist within the group but we can say that, for the most part, they are made up of merchants. Melody, for example, dedicates herself to selling shoes which she markets on trips to the city of Santa Cruz. Her mother works preparing and selling food. Others make crafts, handwoven textiles and borders that they later sell on Sagarnaga Street in the city of La Paz.

The association requires a loan for raw materials and other supplies. In particular, these would be for the nearing holiday season -- a time when their businesses will see growing sales and their incomes will increase.

In this group: Emiliana, Dionicia, Seferina, Pilar, Jheny, Veronica, Florentina, Antonio, Melody, Lidia, Juana, Yamil, Emily, Isabel
