Primaveras De Achocalla Group's story

The “PRIMAVERAS DE ACHOCALLA” communal bank will start its first cycle with Pro Mujer as part of the Villa Exaltación Center. It has nine members and is led by a governing board headed by Emma. The members of the communal bank carry out a variety of businesses. Among them we have: food sales, bookstore, shade plant cultivation, vegetable sales, raising animals, pig raising.

Emma indicates that this is the first time she’s worked with Pro Mujer having joined thanks to a promotion that took place. She currently has a business selling vegetables that she’s been running together with her parents.

The loan she’ll take out now is to increase her working capital (to buy vegetables) that she’ll sell at La Rodríguez, Eloy Salmón every day. This way of working allows her to generate income to support her family since she’s married and has three children.

When asked what she likes about Pro Mujer, she answers that she likes the saving and the health services.

In this group: Emma, Simona Ruut, Marcela, Guillermo, Leonarda Irene, Maria Martina, Modesta, Bernardina, Isabel
