A loan of $2,700 helped a member buy polar fleece.

Consentidas Group's story

The nonprofit, “The Spoiled Ones” will begin their ninth loan with Pro Mujer as a part of Germán Busch’s focal group. The communal bank is made up of ten members and it is run by a board headed by Mrs. Lidia. The businesses that the members of the bank have are all different as they are in the market, production and service fields.

Mrs. Lidia has been a member of a communal bank with Pro Mujer for over twelve years since she was invited by a friend. At present, she makes baize, work that she has being doing for twelve years and started with her first loan.

The loan that Mrs. Lidia needs will be used to buy polar fleece to make her products. This material will be bought at Plaza La Paz (a marketplace in the city of El Alto) she will sell her items in the markets of the La Paz department and her mother will sell them in the Santa Cruz department. Her job allows her to have enough resources to support her family as much as possible since she is married and has three children.

When asked what she enjoys of Pro Mujer she says that she likes the space and the resources.
