Avaroa Group's story

In one of Pro Mujer's towns, Villa Adela, is the Communal Bank “Avoroa”, which has 8 members. They are developing their group by having meetings where they make rules and are lead by their board (president, treasurer, and secretary). They came together as neighbors and friends who all lived around the center of town where they can get the most working capital and raw materials for their businesses. Three members are weavers and five are merchants who buy and sell metal furniture, plastics, slippers, and fruit.

In this group: Eloisa, Silvia Fanny, Martha, Jesusa Lola, Carolina, Ruth Lourdes, Veronica, Carolina
