A loan of $2,400 helped a member to buy stock merchandise for her store.

Flor De Habitas Group's story

The “FLOR DE HABITAS” communal bank will start its first cycle in Pro Mujer as part of the Panamericana Center. It has ten members and is led by a governing board headed by Martha. The businesses of the member are varied. Among them we have: butcher shop, grocery store, commerce, food sales and candy sales.

Martha indicates that this is her first time joining Pro Mujer and that she joined thanks to an invitation from the promoters. She currently has a general store that she’s been running for some time now and she has experience in the business.

The loan she’s taking out now is to stock her merchandise (to purchase oil, canned goods, groceries, etc.) She buys these supplies in the city of El Alto, in La Ceja (commercial street in the city of El Alto) and she’ll sell them in her own home which is where her store is located. This way of working allows her to generate income to help her family in any way possible since she’s married and has three children.

When asked what she likes about Pro Mujer, she answers that she likes the loan.
