Sembrando Esperanza Group's story

The communal bank "SEMBRANDO ESPERANZA" is beginning its first term in Pro Mujer, as part of the Los Andes Social Center. It is comprised of eight members and its board of directors is chaired by Mrs. Isabela. The members' business activities are varied and include commerce, production and services.

Mrs. Isabela joined Pro Mujer by invitation from a friend. She has been in the blanket weaving business for five years and learned the skill from a friend. The loan she is requesting is to increase blanket production by buying wool at the "16 de Julio" shopping center in the city of El Alto. She will sell her products in Ballivian. This work enables her to generate an income to support her family. She is married and has five children.

When asked what she likes about Pro Mujer, she replies that she enjoys the meetings.
