25 De Julio 2 Group's story

The Communal Bank “25 de Julio 2” (July 25th #2) is starting its fourth loan cycle with Pro Mujer as part of the Senkata Community Center. This group consists of nine members and is led by a Board of Directors headed by Sra. Egberta as its president. The members of this Communal Bank engage in different businesses such as selling linseed juice, painting wood, managing a neighborhood store, selling food, selling skirts, sewing jackets, and sewing satchels.

This loan will benefit small businesswomen such as Sra. Egberta. She says that she joined Pro Mujer two years ago after receiving an invitation from a friend who is also a member of the organization. Egberta currently has a business of selling skirts. She learned about this business and then started her own with the first loan she received from Pro Mujer. At the moment, she is doing very well.

The loan she is receiving now will be used to increase her capital for buying skirts. She acquires her goods from the wholesale vendors in the city of La Paz and then sells them from her retail space. Working in this manner enables her to generate income to maintain her household. Egberta is married and has three children.

When asked what she likes about Pro Mujer, Egberta said that she enjoys the training sessions about health and credit.
