Cruz Del Sur Group's story

The Santiago II central office is a medium sized office that includes nearly 100 communal associations. One of those is "Cruz del Sur" (Southern Cross). It's in its fifth cycle and is made up of nine members; eight women and one gentleman. Paulina is the president, Filomena is the secretary, and Bertha is the group's treasurer.

The business that Filomena has had for three years is the selling of repair parts for automobiles. Her first loan was for $100. She is now requesting 2,000 BS. In both cases the loan was for the purchase of inventory. She makes her sales during the day on Thursdays, and Sundays, at the fair in the "16 de Julio" zone. Her husband helps her. When asked what she likes best about "Pro Mujes," she tells us that she likes the training.

Other businesses run by the group's members include transportation, book sales, food sales, second hand clothing sales, automobile accessories, tires, and milk delivery.

In this group: Filomena, Luiza, Margarita, Jacinto, Flora, Paulina, Marina Eugenia, Bertha Leticia, Constancia
