Anari Group's story

The ANARI Community Group will complete its first loan cycle with Pro Mujer as part of the Centro Villa Exaltación. It is made up of eight members and directed by a group of leaders. In this instance, a head of the group interviewed for the loan. She is Mrs. Lourdez. The members' businesses are varied and include: a store, vegetable sales, planting vegetables, sports equipment, and coffee sales.

Mrs. Lourdez shared that she began working with Pro Mujer five years ago. She retired and now has returned after some friends invited her. She currently has a business selling vegetables and has been working at it for ten years after having learned the business from her parents.

The loan will be used to buy more vegetables on Rodríguez Street (a commercial street in the city of La Paz) and she will then sell them every day at the railroad in Villa Dolores every day form 5:30 am until 2:30 pm. This job lets her earn money to help support her family. She is married and has two children.

When asked what she most likes about Pro Mujer, she resonded that she likes the health education and resources.
