A loan of $1,975 helped a member the purchase of eggs.

Yanaptasiñani Group's story

The “YANAPTASIÑANI” communal bank is a group of seven women and one man who have decided to join together to get loans, training and health care. They will be part of the Juan Pablo II central office. They are starting their first cycle.

Each one of the members has their own business, in service, production, or merchandise. Among them, they are: a guesthouse; a candy and drinks sales business; a corner store; a driver; a CD sales business; a beauty product business; and a fruit sales business.
For its organization, the Yanaptasiñani community bank has a board of directors made up of a president (Mrs. Naty), a treasurer (Mrs. Nancy), and a secretary (Mrs. Rosa).

The president, Mrs Naty, lives with her husband and three children. Naty has had a grocery store for five years, and she also sells eggs and pop. She tells us that she once had a small store in her home for fifteen years, until she decided to open a store in a more commercial area.

Naty tends to her business from 6:00 am until 11:00 pm, with her daughter's help.

The loan Naty requested is for 2000 Bs--and it will be used for the purchase of eggs.

Naty says that this is her first experience as a Pro Mujer client. When asked what attracts her to the institution, she responded "participating in the group".

In this group: Naty Rosalia, Maribel Lucero, Rosario Karina, Marco Antonio, Silva, Rosa, Maria Isabel, Nancy Lourdes
