Las Triunfadoras 2018 Group's story

The communal bank “Las Triunfadoras 2018” is starting its first loan cycle with Pro Mujer. They meet in the Alto Lima central office. The group has 8 members, and has a board of directors led by Jhannet, who is the president.

This loan will benefit all of the small-businesswomen in this group. At this time, Jhannet has a pastry business where she sells a variety of cakes and empanadas. She got to know this business by learning on her own initiative over a number of years.

Jhannet will use this loan to increase her working capital by purchasing flour, sugar, cream, and canned goods at wholesale. She will buy these items from the wholesale distributors in the city of La Paz. Later, she will make her products and sell them from her sales post. By working in this way, Jhannet can generate resources to support her family financially, as she is single and is independent.

In this group: Jhannet Cristina , Karen Carla , Santos , Yudith, Bertha, Estefany, Laura Rosa, Jose Luis
