Los Pinos De La Cascada Group's story

The “LOS PINOS DE CASCADA” is starting their 31st cycle with Pro Mujer, as part of the Cascada regional office. It is composed of nine members and is lead by a board of directors with Alejandra as President. The businesses of the members are varied, amongst them are: the sales of cleaning products, a carpentry workshop, a bookstore, transcription services, selling natural medicines, selling polleras (traditional skirts), selling clothing and sewing petticoats.

The loan will benefit all these micro-entrepreneurs of which Alejandra is one. She indicates that she joined Pro Mujer 10 years ago on the invitation of a friend who is a client of the institution. At present she has a business making petticoats. She learned this business working in a sewing workshop. with the passing of the years she decided to work independently.

The loan that she is now getting is to augment her working capital (buying fabric wholesale) that she will acquire at the stores in the city of El Alto and later sell in her commercial space. Working in this way allows her to generate the resources to support her family economically as she is single and has two children. When asked what she likes about Pro Mujer she responded that she likes the health services provided by personal at the institution.
