A loan of $1,675 helped a member to buy yarn.

Puerta Del Sol Group's story

The “PUERTA DEL SOL” community association is made up of eight women and is beginning its first cycle in the Senkata office. Ana is the group’s president and the other women are involved in a number of other businesses, such as selling, production, and services.

Ana says that this is her first time working with a communal association and with Pro Mujer (Professional Woman) and that she joined after they promoted the organization within her zone. At the moment she makes sweaters in a factory.

Her knowledge of knitting motivated her to start her own business. She will use the money from this loan to buy yarn to begin working as an entrepreneur. This will help her earn an income to support her family. She is married and has two children. She tells us that when she likes about Pro Mujer are the gifts.

In this group: Ana Concepción, Margarita, Amalia, Mercedes, Irene, Maura, Margarita, Carola Dolores
