1 De Abril Group's story

The communal bank "1 de Abril" (First of April) will begin its fourteenth loan cycle with ProMujer as part of the Senkata regional center. It is composed of nine members and is led by a board of directors where Señora Teofila is the president.

The loan that they will take out will benefit these micro-entrepreneurs, of whom Teofila is one. At this time she has a business of selling juices. She lets it be known that she learned this business on her own initiative a number of years ago.

The loan that she will take out now will be to increase her capital to buy sugar and fruits wholesale, which she will acquire from the wholesale vendors of the city of La Paz and will later use for the preparation and sale [of her juices] in her sales space. This form of work allows her to generate resources to support her family economically, since she is married and has two children.
