Por Fin Group's story

The communal bank called “Por Fin” will start its seventh loan cycle with Pro Mujer, part of the 3 de Mayo regional office. The group comprises 11 members governed by a board of directors, of which Elizabeth is the President.
The loan that they will take out now will benefit small micro businesses where Elizabeth is a member. At the moment she has a food sales business; she explains that she taught herself the business some years ago.
The loan will provide capital to buy noodles, rice, and cooking oil from wholesalers in the city of La Paz. Subsequently the food is prepared and sold from her shop. This work allows her to generate an income so that she can provide for her family; she is a single mother with two children.
Note- Ten members appear in the picture because Doña Ana had to go to her shop after the loan was disbursed.
