Communal Association "semilla" Group's story

In one of the Pro Mujer Focal Centres, the “Los Andes” Focal Centre, you find the Communal Association “SemilL.”. This Association is lead by its president, Encarna M., and the women meet every two weeks. These women are together for 9 years and they like to share their experiences and learn about different topics, in particular health, because it helps them to take better care of their children and prevent diseases such as diarrhoea.

The women in this group have different occupations. While Rebeca and GracieL. knit scarves with alpaca wool and sell their products to tourists, other women sell fruit, tennis shoes, mobile phones accessories and other items. At this moment, all of them need a loan to invest in their businesses, buying raw material (wool) and supplies (fruit, tennis shoes).

In this group: Encarna, Hilaria, Amalia, Florentina, Daria Mery, Betzabe, Graciela, Rebeca, Veronica, Eva, Juana, Nancy Nely, Lucia, Martha
