A loan of $2,325 helped a member to buy supplies.

Los Pioneros Group's story

The “LOS PIONEROS” community association is beginning its first cycle with Pro Mujer, as part of the Villa Exaltación Center. It’s made up of eight members and run by a board of directors lead by Justina. The members are involved in a number of businesses, including food sales, clothing sales, and vegetable sales.

Justina started working with Pro Mujer 11 cycles ago, after having been invited in by a friend. She has a food business which she learned from her family. She has had it for eight years.

She will use this loan to invest into her food business. She will buy supplies from the markets and will sell in the La Paz city center, with the help of one employee, during the day. Working in this way allows her to earn an income to support her family however possible. She is married and has a daughter.

She tells us that she likes the training she gets from Pro Mujer.

In this group: Justina, Ana Marleny, Francisca, Rosario Mariela, Pedro, Oolivia Rosa, Vania Marilyn, Betty
