Emprendedoras Group's story

The "Emprendedoras" ("Entrepreneurs") communal bank will begin its second cycle with Pro Mujer, part of the Centro Focal de Panamericana. It has eight members and is presided by Maria. The members of the association run a variety of business, including: making and selling vicuna yarn, making skirts, making clothes, selling fish, selling CDs, selling shirts and a convenience store. Maria, president of the association, explains that this is her second cycle with Pro Mujer. Maria currently owns a clothes making business and with the loan she will buy fabric. She sells her products from Monday to Saturday in Larecaja street. In the picture we can see that Flora, one of the members, is missing. She had to leave in a rush to open her business.
