A loan helped to buy jewelry at wholesale.

Bien Venido Group's story

The communal bank “Bien Venido” is taking its first loan with Pro Mujer. They meet in the Villa Tejada central office. This group has 8 members, and is led by a board of directors of which Erika is the president.

This loan will benefit all of the small-businesswomen in Erika's group. At this time, Erika has a business selling jewelry. She got to know this business through her own initiative over a number of years.

Erika will use this loan to increase her working capital (to buy jewelry at wholesale from the wholesale vendors in the city of La Paz). Later, she will sell these goods from her shop. By working this way, Erika can generate resources to support her family financially, as she is married and has 2 children.
