Flor De Amores Group's story

The community bank “FLOR DE AMORES” will begin its first cycle with Pro Mujer as part of the Centro Focal de Senkata. The group consists of 8 members and is directed by an executive board of which Sussy is the president. The members have various businesses: selling milk, selling jackets, selling food, selling refreshments, providing transportation. The loan will benefit their respective small businesses.

Sussy is a member of this group and she joined Pro Mujer at the invitation in a massive promotion the institution did in her area. Today she has a food business. She learned this work several years ago by her own initiative. The loan she seeks will be to increase capital in order to buy vegetables and groceries at wholesale that she will acquire from wholesalers in El Alto city. She will then make and sell her food in her vendor space. This work permits her to generate income to support her family, as she is single and has four children. When asked what she likes about Pro Mujer, she responds that she likes the training the institution offers.
