A loan of $2,125 helped a member to buy weaving supplies.


Warawaritas Group's story

The “WARAWARITAS” communal bank will begin its third cycle in Pro Mujer as part of the Senkata Center. It has 8 members and is led by a governing board headed by Hilda. The communal bank members are in a variety of businesses. Among them we have: pants manufacturing, cosmetics sales, chicken sales, detergent sales, textile weaving, grocery store and meat sales.

Hilda indicates that this is the third cycle she’s worked with Pro Mujer. She joined thanks to an invitation from a promoter. She currently has a textile weaving micro business and a chicken shop that she's had since she was 16 years old; she’s been in business a total of 20 years.

The loan she’ll take out now is to increase her capital. She will buy textile weaving materials at wholesale on Rodríguez Street (a commercial area in the city of La Paz) that she’ll then sell on order. This way of working makes it possible for her to support her family in some way since she’s single and has five children.

When asked what she likes about Pro Mujer she answers: the training and the health services.
