A loan of $3,125 helped a member to buy fabric.


Cariñositas Group's story

The lending club "CARIÑOSITAS” will begin their 4th cycle with Pro Mujer as part of the focal center Los Andes. It is made up of 8 members and is directed by a board headed by Basilia. The association members' businesses are varied and include: making sportswear, a store, selling towels, making quilts, selling videos, and making jackets.

Basilia says that she joined the group by invitation and is in her 2nd cycle with Pro Mujer. She has a store making and selling athletic jerseys where she has worked for 2 years.

The loan will be used to increase her capital through the purchase of fabric which she will get on Max Paredes street. Later she will make the clothes and sell them in the 16 de Julio market on Thursdays and Sundays. This work has allowed her to generate income to support her family. She lives in a common-law marriage.

In this group: Basilia, Ruth Rosmery, Luz Mery , Olga , Candy Guadalupe , Rosa , Roxana, Yngrid Nabil
