Las Reynas Triunfadoras Group's story

The “REINAS TRIUNFADORAS” (Triumphant Queens) communal bank will start a new process in Pro Mujer as part of the Los Andes Focal Center. It has nine members led by a governing board chaired by the President, Angélica. She mentions that this is her first cycle with the “Reinas Triunfadoras” communal bank but she worked four cycles in the Alto Lima Focal Center.

She tells us that she currently has a “ropasicos” (pearls on fabric) business but will use the loan she’s taking out now to open another business consisting in knitting “chambritas” (infant sweaters) that will be sold in the city of El Alto’s 16 de Julio market. This work will help her contribute to her family’s support a bit more since she’s married and has three children.

When she was asked what she likes about Pro Mujer she answered that she likes the required savings and that she’s motivated to continue forward.

With respect to the members of the association, we can state that they are running a variety of businesses, such as: neighborhood store, grocery store, blanket weaving, blanket manufacturing, candy sales, vegetables sales, food sales and sportswear merchandising.

In this group: Angélica, Eusebia, Glenys Blanca , Ana María, Fidelia, Rosmery Rosa, Crecencia Mirieza, Rosmery, Maria, Jina
