A loan of $1,400 helped a member to buy fabric.

14 De Junio Group's story

The group "14 de Julio" will begin their first cycle with Pro Mujer, as part of the focal center Alto Lima. The group has 8 members and a board of directors headed by Aurora. The members have varied businesses including making traditional skirts, selling fruit, selling food, selling sodas, underwear sales, coca leaf sales and selling rice.

Aurora says this is the first time that she has worked with Pro Mujer and that she joined at the invitation of the promoter. Currently she has a business sewing traditional Andean skirts. She has been doing this for 11 years, learning from her aunt who used to do the same thing.

The loan that she will take out now is to buy fabric (increase capital). She will buy the fabric in bulk on Max Paradez street. Once the skirts are made she will sell them by request to different stores. This work allows her to generate income to support her family, since she is married and has two children.

In this group: Aurora, Gregorio, Eva, Gregoria, Beatriz, Ssantusa, Natividad, Francisca
