San Roque Group's story

The communal bank "San Roque" is beginning its first loan cycle with Pro Mujer through the Juan Pablo II Regional Office. It is composed of eight members and is led by a board of directors, of which Maruja is the president.

Maruja is one of the small business owners benefitted by this loan. She currently has a business selling blankets. Maruja has stated that she learned this business several years ago, through her own initiative.

This loan will allow Maruja to increase her capital by buying wholesale wool from wholesalers in the city of La Paz. The wool will be used for manufacturing blankets to sell in her commercial space.

This type of work allows Maruja to obtain the resources to support her family financially. She is married and has five children.
