Princesitas Del Amor Group's story

“Princesitas del Amor” is the name chosen by these women for their group, which is part of the Los Andes focal center, one of the oldest focal centers of Pro Mujer El Alto. This is their first loan cycle, and the nine members are all women.

The president is Nora Beatriz; she has been making jackets for 10 years. Her loan request was for Bs.1,000, which she plans to invest in fabric and other supplies for making jackets. She makes the jackets and, with the help of her family, sells them to customers who come to her home.

The business activities of the other members are varied, including: bread sales, jacket tailoring and sales, public transportation driver, sale of automobile accessories and automotive lubricants, tailoring athletic clothing and jackets, food sales, and a general store.

In this group: Nora Beatriz, Maria, Hilaria Julia , Sara, Maria Angelica, Elizabeth, Antonieta, Blanca Lili*, Roxana
