Janko Qala Group's story

The communal bank “Janko Qala” is starting its first loan cycle with Pro Mujer, in the Copacabana central office. This group has 8 members and is led by a board of directors. Felipa is the president of the board.

This loan will benefit all of the small-businesswomen in Felipa's group. At this time, Felipa has a business selling milk. She got to know this business by learning on her own initiative over a number of years.

This loan will increase Felipa's working capital by enabling her to buy cattle from the wholesale vendors in the city of La Paz. She will later use the cows as a means of producing milk cheese to sell. By working in this way, Felipa is able to generate resources to support her family financially. Felipa is in a common-law marriage and has 6 children.

In this group: Felipa , Emma , Teodora Elsa , Blanca Mayra, Asencio, Catalina , Hipolito, Juliana Viviana
