Flor De Azucena Group's story

The “Flor de Azucena” (Easter Lilly) communal bank will start its first cycle in Pro Mujer as part of the Villa Tejada focal center. It has six members led by a governing board headed by Zulema, the President. The members carry out a variety of businesses. Among them we have: food sales, liquor sales, shoe sales, Broaster-style chicken sales, fruit sales and pants sales. Zulema indicates that this is the first time she’s worked in Pro Mujer and that she joined the institution through an invitation from a friend. She currently sells Broaster-style chickens, a business she’s had for several years having learned it from previous jobs. The loan she’ll take out now is to increase her working capital. She’ll buy chickens in La Ceja and once ready will sell them in her sales space. This way of working allows her to generate resources to support her family since she’s single. When asked what she likes about Pro Mujer, she answers that she likes the health services. Raquel, for cultural reasons, does not appear in the photo.
