A loan helped a member to buy canned goods wholesale.


El Arbolito Group's story

The loan group "El Arbolito" is starting its fourth cycle in Pro Mujer, as part of the Senkata Focus Center. It's made up of eight members and led by a board of directors, where Julia is the president.

The loan they are taking out will benefit small micro-businesses where Julia is a member. Right now, she has a neighborhood store business. She learned this business through her own initiative several years ago.

The loan she's taking now will be to increase capital by buying canned foods wholesale, which she will buy from the larger vendors in the city of La Paz. Later, she will sell them in her store. This form of work allows her to generate resources to support her family economically, as she's married and has three children.

In this group: Julia Veronica, Martha Silvia , Claudio , Doroteo Angel, Emma, Maria Eugenia , Elysabet Felipa , Augusta
