Las Rositas Group's story

The Communal Bank “Las Rositas” (The Little Roses) is starting its fourth loan cycle with Pro Mujer as part of the Achacachi Community Center. This group consists of eight members and is led by a Board of Directors in which Sra. Julia is the president. The members of this Communal Bank engage in different businesses such as selling food, selling cheese, selling milk, providing construction services, selling alpaca wool, and farming.

This loan will benefit small entrepreneurs such as Sra. Julia. She says that this is the first time she has joined Pro Mujer after receiving an invitation from her fellow group members who are part of the Communal Bank. Julia currently has a business where she produces cheese and sells milk. She became knowledgeable about this type of work since she was part of a family business. When she began living with her partner, Julia decided to continue in the same business.

The loan she is receiving now will be used to buy fodder for her cows during times of drought. She will acquire the feed from wholesale vendors in her community and provide it to her cows so that they can grow. Working in this manner enables her to generate income for supporting her family. Julia is in a common-law relationship and has three children.

When asked what she likes about Pro Mujer, Julia said that she enjoys the training seminars offered by the organization.
