A loan of $2,750 helped a member to purchase cattle.

Kantutas De Cañuma Group's story

The communal bank "Kantutas de Canuma" will begin its first loan cycle with Pro Mujer (Kiva Field Partner) as part of Centro Villa Exaltacion. It is made up of twelve members and it is managed by a board of directors, led by Mrs. Remedios. The businesses held by the members of the communal bank are various, and among them we have: vegetables sales, community store, raising livestock, sweets sales in a school, shoes sales, janitorial services, sewing services, raising cattle, prepared foods sales.

Mrs. Remedios indicates that is the first time she has joined Pro Mujer and she is a member following an invitation for a neighbor. She currently has a cattle sales business and she has had it for five months.

The loan will be used to purchase a cow. She will purchase it in the community of Vilacota in the municipality of Achocalla. Once the cattle can be sold she will take them to the fairs at Achocalla. She comments that she has this business together with her husband. This type of business helps her generate an income to help her family as much as possible. She is married and she has ten children.

When she was asked what she likes about Pro Mujer, she said that she enjoys the savings and the low interest rates.
