Chicas Mañaneras Group's story

The “CHICAS MAÑANERAS” community association is in its first cycle with Pro Mujer (Professional Woman), as part of the Andes Central Office. It’s made up of eight members and Exalta is the group’s president. The member are involved in a variety of businesses, such as beef sales, fish sales, and prepared food sales.

Exalta tells us that this is the first time that she has worked with Pro Mujer. She sells pork and has been doing so for 10 years, having learned this business from her sister. She will use the money from this loan to buy bulls and livestock to breed and sell at the Viancha fair in La Paz.

This work allows her to earn a living. She is single. When asked what she likes about Pro Mujes, she replied, “Everything.”

In this group: Exalta, Norah, Frida Gabriela, Paulina, Teodora, Lidia, Estela, Catalina
