Hijas Del Illampu Group's story

The A.C. “HIJAS DE ILLAMPU” will start their 8th loan cycle at "Pro Mujer", as part of the "Centro Focal Achacachi". The group is made of nine members and it has a board of directors where Reina is the President. The type of businesses the members of the community association have are various, among them; food sales, community store, fruit sales, beverage sales, construction services and beauty salon.

The loan they are requesting will benefit small micro-entrepreneurs. Reina is a member and eight years ago she became a part of "Pro Mujer". She joined when she received an invitation from a promotion made by the organization in her community. Currently, she has a business selling meals, she learned this trade from her mother and a few years ago decided to start her own business.

The loan that she is requesting will be used to increase her capital (to buy pasta and rice in bulk). She will buy them from vendors in La Paz and after preparing the meals she will sell them in her food stall. This type of work allows her to generate the resources to financially support her family since she has three children.

When asked why she likes "Pro Mujer" she responds that she likes the workshops that the organization offers.
