25 De Diciembre Group's story

The lending group "25 de Diciembre" will start their 3rd cycle with Pro Mujer, as part of the focal center German Busch. There are 9 members and a board of directors, of whom Patricia acts as president. The members' businesses are varied and include: a restaurant, selling tin, a taxi cab, sewing, selling baby clothes, upholstery, sewing hats, and carpentry. The loan will benefit these small businesses, including Patricia's. She has been through 4 cycles with Pro Mujer, starting at the invitation of a friend who is a member of the institution. She currently has a business selling food. She started it together with her brother some years ago, and she continues it though her brother has left his role in business. The loan will be used to increase her merchandise by purchasing potatoes, rice, noodles, etc, that she will get in village markets and later use to make food that she will sell in her stall. This work will allow her to generate resources to maintain her house, as she is married and has 2 children. When asked what she likes about Pro Mujer, she says that she enjoys the parts related to health.
