A loan of $3,650 helped a member to buy fabric.

Prosperidad Group's story

The “PROSPERIDAD” communal bank will start its 10th cycle in Pro Mujer as part of the Cascada Focal Center. It has 11 members and its President is Roset. The businesses of the members are different. Among them we find: commerce, production and services.

Roset, group President, states that she’s participated in Pro Mujer for three years and became part of the institution through an invitation from the advisors.

Currently Roset is weaving blankets thanks to skills learned from her mother. She’s been in this line of work for 6 years. The loan she’s taking out now will be used to buy fabric for blankets that she’ll get at the 16 D. Julio market. Later, she’ll sell them at a fixed stand she has at the market.

This work method allows her to generate income to support her family because she has a spouse and a daughter.

When she is asked what she likes about Pro Mujer she answers that she likes the training.

In this group: Roset Fabiola, Sonia, Carmela, Agustina, Susana Marisol, Basilia, Lidia, Juan Carlos, Juana, Catalina, Narcisa
