A loan of $5,650 helped a member to buy rice, pasta, and oil wholesale.

Triunfadoras Group's story

Triunfadoras Communal Bank will start its second loan cycle with Pro Mujer as part of the Juan Pablo II Regional Office. The group is made up of nine members governed by a board of directors of which Felisa's the president.

The loan they're getting will benefit small businesswomen like Felisa. Currently she has a business selling food. She said she learned this business on her own initiative several years ago.

The loan she's going to get now will be to increase her capital with a bulk purchase of rice, pasta, and oil that she'll get from the wholesale vendors in the city of La Paz, then make and sell in her sales space. This job allows her to earn the resources to support her family financially, because she's married and has a child.

In this group: Felisa , Delia Antonia, Ercilia, Mary Cruz, Gabriela , Rosalia , Maxima , Judith Vanesa, Maria
