Las Lecheritas Group's story

The community association “LAS LECHERITAS” is starting its first lending cycle with Pro Mujer, as part of the Villa Exaltación Center. The group is made up of ten members and is led by a board headed by Señora Maria. The businesses that community association members lead are varied, including breeding animals, selling vegetables, selling milk, raising pigs, and selling cattle. Señora Maria says that this is their first time working with Pro Mujer, which they joined at the invitation of one of her partners.

Currently, Señora Maria has a business breeding cattle, a business which she started in as a young girl with the help of her parents. The loan that she is will now be drawing on is to buy feed for her cattle, which she will acquire at the markets in El Alto city. This type of work allows her to generate resources to support her family as much as possible, because she is married and has three children.

When asked what she likes about Pro Mujer, she replies that she likes everything.
