Primero De Mayo Group's story

The PRIMERO DE MAYO communal bank will start its third loan cycle with Pro Mujer, as part of the Villa Exaltación focus group, which is comprised of eight members and is managed by a board of directors where Nadir is the President. The members’ businesses are varied, including ceramic pot sales, transportation services, milkshake sales, underwear sales, candy sales, sweater sales, food sales, and a neighborhood store.

The loan they’re taking out will benefit small businesses. Nadir, who is a member, said that she joined Pro Mujer two years ago after she was invited by a friend who was a client of the institution. She currently has a business selling ceramic pots. She said that she learned this skill from her mother several years ago since she helped in that business and learned to sell these items in different regions.

The loan she is taking out now is to increase her capital to buy ceramic pots wholesale. She will get them from vendors in La Paz and then she’ll sell them by customer order. This form of work allows her to earn income to financially support her family since she is single and has two children.

When we asked her what she likes about Pro Mujer, she said she likes the medical consultations that they offer.
