Union Y Hermandad Group's story

The “Union y Hermandad” communal bank is starting their first loan with Pro Mujer, as part of the Senkata branch office. It is made up of eight members led by a board of directors with Jhesica as president.

The loan they are taking out will benefit all these micro-entrepreneurs, Jhesica being one of them. She currently has a business selling wool hats. She said that she learned the business on her own a number of years ago. Her husband gave her motivation to do it.

The loan she is now taking out is to increase her capital buying hats wholesale that she will acquire from the wholesalers of the city of La Paz. Later she will sell them in her commercial space. This method of work allows her to generate resources to support her family economically as she is married and has two children.
