Kantutitas De Alto Lima Group's story

The "Kantutitas de Alto Lima" communal bank is starting its first cycle with Pro Mujer as part of the Centro Focal de Alto Lima. It is made up of eight members and led by a board of directors. Elsa is the secretary. The members carry out various types of businesses including meat sales, soft drink and sweet sales, blanket sales, plastic bag sales, and neighborhood store. This loan will benefit women owners of microenterprises, such as Elsa. She indicated that she joined Pro Mujer by invitation from a friend who is a client of the institution. Elsa has a business selling meat, this is work that she learned ten years ago from her mother. She is applying for this loan to increase capital (to buy meat wholesale) that she will get from the wholesale sellers of the city in El Alto. She will then sell the goods at her stand. This work allows her to get an income to support her family. Elsa is in a common-low marriage and has four children. When asked what she likes about Pro Mujer, Elsa answers that she likes the training offered by the institution.
