A loan helped a member to buy wool in bulk.


Aymara Group's story

The “Aymara” communal bank is starting its nineteenth loan cycle through Pro Mujer’s Panamericana office. The bank has nine members, and is run by a board of directors that has Virginia as President.

This loan will benefit small time entrepreneurs in Virginia’s group. Virginia currently has a business selling blankets. She says that learned this trade from her mother a few years ago.

This loan will be used to increase capital by buying wool in bulk from wholesalers in the city of La Paz. Virginia will then prepare and sell the products at her business. This work allows Virginia to earn a living to give her family financial support; Virginia is married and has three children.

In this group: Virginia, Flora Cristina, Valentin , Rosa , Mercedes, Maria Elena, Sofia Olga , Virginia, Demia Doclicia
