Corazon D Eestaño Group's story

The communal bank Corazón de Estaño will begin its tenth cycle through Pro Mujer as part of the Centro Focal Villa Adela local office. The group is made up of nine members and is led by a board of directors, of which Maria is the president.

The loan that they are receiving benefits this group of micro-entrepreneurs that Maria is a member of. Currently, she has a business selling potatoes and chuño [freeze-dried potatoes]. She explains that she learned this business through her own initiative several years ago.

The loan that she's taking out now will be used to increase her capital for the purchase of potatoes and chuño in bulk from the wholesale vendors in the city of La Paz. She will then sell from her market stall. This type of work allows her to generate income to support her family, as she is married and has three children.
