A loan of $2,475 helped a member to increase her merchandise by purchasing hosiery.

Las Sembradoras Group's story

The “Sembradoras” (Farmers) Communal bank will start their first cycle in Pro Mujer as part of the Villa Adela Community Center. The bank is comprised of nine members. Gloria is the president. The members of the communal bank carry on with varied activities such as selling coffee, selling food, selling hosiery, carpentry, weaving shop, selling broasted chicken, knitting sweaters, and selling weavings.

Gloria, the president of the communal bank, says that this is the first time she has worked with Pro Mujer. She has a business selling hosiery, and she has been working in this business for a year. She tells us that she learned this business from some friends who were in this field.

She will use this loan to increase her merchandise (hosiery). She buys her merchandise from the Isac Tamayo, and she sells it at the 16 de Julio fair on Thursdays and Sundays. This type of work allows her to generate resources to support her family. She is married and has three children. When asked what she likes about Pro Mujer, she replied that she likes the health services.

In this group: Gloria, Exalta Lidia, Yolanda Carderia, Silvia, Emeteria , Sofia, Cindy Heiddy, Sandra Tereza, Rolando
