Dios Con Nosotros Group's story

The "Dios Con Nosotros" (God with us) communal bank will begin its ninth cycle with Pro Mujer as part of the Panamericana Regional Center. The group is composed of eight members and is run by a board of directors of which Justina is the president.

The businesses run by the communal bank's members are varied, including blanket sales, beverage sales, perfume sales, stocking sales, and fruit sales.

The loan that they take will benefit small business owners. Justina, a member of the group, mentions that they joined Pro Mujer five years ago after receiving an invitation from a consultant who is a part of the institution. Currently she has a business selling blankets. This business began several years ago through her own initiative.

This current loan is to increase capital (wholesale wool), which she will buy from vendors in the city of El Alto and then sell in her store. This work will allow her to generate resources to economically support her family, as she is married with three children.

When asked what she likes about Pro Mujer, she responds that she likes the health care offered by the institution.
