A loan of $1,600 helped a member to purchase cookware.

14 De Diciembre Group's story

The “14 OF DECEMBER” cooperative bank is starting its first cycle in the city center of Senkata. They have eight members, all of whom are women. All of their businesses are related to commerce, production and service, such as: cement and plaster sales, knitting blankets, food sales, making bed linens and sweaters, condiment sales, selling shakes, and knitting bodices. Management is comprised of a President, Isabel, a Treasurer, Susania, and a Secretary, Mery.

Isabel, President of the cooperative bank “14 de Diciembre” is both mother and father to three children. More than fifteen years ago, on her own initiative, she opened a food sales business in the “Ceja” behind the Capriles School where she works in the mornings. This business has allowed her to meet the expenses of her household.

This first loan of 2000 Bolivianos will allow her to buy cookware. When asked what she most likes about Pro Mujer, she replies “the training”.

In this group: Isabel, Rosula, Angelica, Susania, Rogelia, Mery, Marcia Giovana, Juana
