6 De Abril Group's story

The communal bank "6 de Abril" will begin its twelfth cycle in Pro Mujer as part of the Villa Adela regional hub. It is made up of nine members and is run by a governing board where Marcela is the President.

The loan they will take out will benefit the small businesses of the group where Marcela is a member. She currently has a business selling food. She learned this business on her own initiative several years ago.

The loan they will now take out will be to increase capital. She will buy wholesale noodles, rice, and oil from the wholesale sellers in the city of La Paz. Later she will make and sell the food in her selling space. This form of work allows her to generate resources to support her family economically, since she is single and has a child.
