Flor Naciente Group's story

The Flor Naciente communal bank will start its second cycle with Pro Mujer as part of the Senkata Focal Center. It is comprised of nine members and is headed by a board with Verónica as the president. The businesses of the members of the communal bank are varied. Among them are selling food, selling fish, selling rabbits, a neighborhood store, and selling CDs. The loan will benefit small businesswomen such as Verónica. She says that she has been a member of Pro Mujer for three and a half years. She joined by invitation from a friend who is a member of the institution. She has a business of weaving by machine. She learned this business by her own initiative. The loan that she will now take out is to increase capital (to buy wool). She will get the wool from wholesalers in the city of La Paz. She will later sell what she makes at the space where she sells. This way of working allows her to generate resources to support her household as much as possible. She is married and has two children. When asked what she likes about Pro Mujer, she replied that she likes the health trainings and the loans.
