Alternativa Group's story

Alternativa is a group made up of 9 women and 1 man. They meet every two weeks at the Los Andes Communal Bank. They have been associated with the Pro Mujer family for the past 12 years. They have different lines of work which range from weaving clothing, to baking bread, to making furniture, clothing sales, bags, and sales of prepared meals. They need financing to increase their working capital, some to buy merchandise, others to get work supplies. Since they are long-standing clients, they like to come to the health center for general check-ups, specifically the Papanicolau test. They also bring their children in for weight and height monitoring.

In this group: Francisca, Felipa, Lucrecia, Evaristo, Margarita, Elva, Martha, Hortencia, Asunta, Modesta
