A loan of $4,000 helped a member purchase merchandise and basic materials.

Puerta Del Sol Group's story

Barbara S. is 75 years old and for approximately 10 years has been working with the Pro Mujer family. She notes that in order to access the loan she had to train for three months. At the beginning, there were only a few of them, but gradually women began to form groups (neighbors and friends). In the training, they were taught how to manage their businesses. Currently, she belongs to the "Puerta del Sol" group which in turn is part of the "Alto Lima" Centro Focal.

Barbara has six children, all of whom are married and two of whom learned the business that she manages, which is making string or rope.

The other members also have their own businesses. Some are dedicated to the production of blankets and sweaters while others are dedicated to selling products such as baby clothes, backpacks, and groceries. All need a loan to acquire basic materials and merchandise.

In this group: Julia, Concha, Barbara, Mery Josefina, Rosalia, Gregoria Margarita, Antonia Arminda, Pilar, Sabina Legitima, Elena, Delapaz, Victoria Lourdes, Valentina, Victoria, Crispin Jose*
