A loan of $2,050 helped a member to buy yarn, wool, etc.

Milluni Group's story

The “Milluni” communal bank will start its first cycle with Pro Mujer as part of the Panamericana Center. It has 8 members led by a governing board headed by Rosa. The members of this communal bank carry out a variety of businesses. Among them are: games sales, vicuña wool textiles, food sales and metal shop.

Rosa indicates that this is the first time she’s joined Pro Mujer and that she was invited by a promoter. She currently has a business making crafts that she’s had for the last 10 years.

The loan she will take out now is to increase her capital (she will buy yarn, wool, etc.) She buys these materials in La Ceja and at the 16 de Julio Market at wholesale. After she completes making the crafts she sells them on order. This way of working allows her to generate income for herself since she’s single.

In this group: Rosa, Martha Aurelia , Natividad , Benita , Julia, Raquel , Esteban , Amalia
