A loan of $2,300 helped a member to buy plaster.

Municipal D-4 Group's story

The "Municipal D-4" community bank is about to start its third loan cycle with Pro Mujer, as part of the Los Andes regional office. It has eleven members and is run by a board of directors which is led by Gladys. The businesses that the members of the bank carry out are varied and include: running a neighborhood store, selling stevia, distributing products, selling cosmetics, selling potatoes and rice, selling meals, making footwear, running a stationery store, selling clothes, running a store selling plaster and knitting blankets.

Gladys tells us that she has been working with Pro Mujer for two loan cycles. She joined through an invitation she received during some promotional activities in her area. She currently has a business selling plaster. She learned this business from her parents.

Gladys will use this loan to increase her capital (buying plaster). She buys this material in hardware stores and sells it in Lagunas district, from Monday to Friday. This work allows her to make money with which to support her family. Gladys lives with her common-law husband and has two children. When we asked her what she liked about Pro Mujer, she replied that she likes the health services.
