A loan helped to buy rice, oil and beans in bulk.

Illimani* Group's story

The communal bank Illimani* will start their eleventh loan cycle with Pro Mujer as part of the regional hub of Villa Copacabana. The group is made up of eight members and is directed by an executive board of which Antonia is president.

This loan will be of benefit to the small business holders that Antonia is a part of. At the moment she runs a grocery store, a business that she started out of her own initiative some years ago.

The loan that Antonia will take out will be used to increase her working capital (rice, oil and beans in bulk) which she will purchase from the bulk sellers in La Paz after selling her current stock in her retail space. This form of work allows her to generate an income to support her family financially, since she is a single mother to a son.
