Campo Verde Group's story

The Communal Bank “Campo Verde” (Green Pasture) is starting its second loan cycle with Pro Mujer as part of the Patacamaya Community Center. This group consists of eight members and is led by a Board of Directors in which Sra. Juana is the president. The members of this Communal Bank engage in various businesses such as selling cheese, managing a neighborhood store, producing milk and cheese, and selling food.

This loan will benefit small entrepreneurs such as Sra. Juana. She says that this is her second loan cycle since joining Pro Mujer. Juana received an invitation from a promoter of the organization who visited her at her house. She currently has a cattle business that she started several years ago. Juana gained knowledge as a girl by helping her family, which has helped her to manage this business.

The loan she is receiving now will be used to increase her capital for buying fodder in bulk, which she will acquire from the wholesale producers in her community. Afterwards, she will sell the animals that she raises from her vending post. Working in this manner enables her to generate income to support her family. Juana is married and has seven children.

When asked what she likes about Pro Mujer, Juana said that she enjoys the loans that are offered by the organization.
