A loan helped buy wool in bulk.

Urbanizacion Leon Group's story

The Urbanización Leon Community Bank is starting its tenth loan cycle with Pro Mujer, part of the Panamericana business group. There are nine members in the group which is led by a board of directors with Sra. Estela as president.

The loan they are seeking will benefit small businesswomen such as Sra. Estela who currently runs a business selling wool. She learned how to do this from her mother several years ago. Estela will use the money to buy wool in bulk from the wholesale sellers in the city of La Paz, and subsequently to buy a place from which to sell the wool. Her work enables her to generate an income to support her family; she lives with her partner and has four children.
