Lipari Group's story

The “Lipari” communal bank will start its first cycle with Pro Mujer as part of the Villa Exaltación Center. It has 11 members led by a governing board headed by Isidora. The members of the communal bank carry out a variety of businesses like: raising livestock, raising dairy cows and transportation. Isidora indicates that this is the first time she’s joined Pro Mujer; she was invited by a promoter and by her neighbors. Currently, she raises dairy cows. She started when she got married following a suggestion from her mother-in-law; she currently works alongside her husband. The loan she will take out now is to purchase feed for the cows (forage) that she’ll buy in the community of Callapa. This way of earning a living makes it possible for her to generate resources to support the family as much as possible for she’s married and has two children. When she is asked what she likes about Pro Mujer, she answers that she likes the low interest rates.
