Mapit Sartasiñani Group's story
The Mapit Sartasiñani communal bank will start its 18th cycle with Pro Mujer as part of the German Busch Regional Office. It is comprised of eight members, and it is headed by a board of directors. Pamela is the president. The businesses that the members carry out are varied and include a bakery, making jackets, making wedding gowns, selling baby clothes, cosmetic business, and making pastries. The loan they will take will benefit small businesswomen where Pamela is a member. She says that she has been a member of Pro Mujer for two years. She joined by invitation from her cousin, who is a member of the institution. She currently has a bakery business. She says that she undertook this business as an inheritance from her mother-in-law. The loan that she will now take is to increase capital (to buy flour) that she will get from the stores that distribute it in the city of El Alto. After baking, she will sell her products at her sales location. 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 responded that she likes the loans and the savings.
