Leo Group's story
The "LEO" communal bank will start its thirtieth cycle with Pro Mujer as part of the Villa Tejada regional office. It is made up of eight members and is directed by a board, of which Carola is the President. The communal bank's members have a variety of businesses. Among them are: printing service, neighborhood store, selling cosmetics, and selling beer. The loan that they will take out will benefit small microbusinesspeople like Carola. She indicates that she joined Pro Mujer four years ago at the invitation of a friend who is a customer of the institution. Currently she has a printing service business. She makes it known that she learned this business working at a printing company and decided to start her own business more than twenty-five years ago. The loan that she will now take out will be to increase capital (to buy wholesale paper and tape) that she will acquire from the wholesale sellers on the Peru-Bolivia border, in order to subsequently offer her printing services. This form of work allows her to generate resources to support her family economically, since she is married and has seven children. When she is asked what she likes about Pro Mujer, she responds that she likes the health area that the institution offers.
