Bartolinas De Peñas Group's story

The “Bartolinas de Peñas” communal bank will begin its third cycle in Pro Mujer, as a part of the Copacabana Focal Center. It is made up of eight members and is led by a board of directors, of which Natividad is the president.

The loan they will take out will benefit the micro-businesswomen, including Natividad. Right now, she has a business selling cheese. She reports that she learned this business own her own initiative several years ago.

The loan she will take out now will be to increase working capital by buying cattle, which she will acquire from sellers in the community. Later, she will use the cattle as a means of production. This type of work allows her to generate resources to support her family financially, because she is married and has four children.
