Las Cumplidas De 3 De Mayo Group's story
The communal association “Las Cumplidas de 3 de Mayo" will begin its third cycle in Pro Women, as part of the central focus of Los Andes. It is made up of 9 members and is lead by a board, which Virginia is the president of. The businesses of the members are various and include: selling blankets, selling perfumes and sports clothes, selling kebabs, working in construction, and selling games and skirts. The loan which they are looking for will benefit the small businesses of which Virginia is a member, she has been a member of Pro Women for 4 years and joined after an invitation from a partner who belongs to the institution. At the moment she has a business selling blankets, she came to know this business after she started her own business several years ago and learned it on her own. The loan they are now looking for is to increase the capital (to purchase wholesale wool) which they will get of the wholesalers in the city of La Paz, they will then be able to produce and sell in their own shop. This type of work will allow her to generate resources to help her family economically, she is already quite old and has two children. When asked what she likes about Pro Women, Virginia replied that she likes the training and the health support which the institution offers.
