A loan of $1,900 helped a member to buy wool.

Flor De Retamas Group's story

The communal bank "Flor de Retamas" will start its third loan cycle with Pro Mujer in the central office of Senkata. This group has 10 members, and is led by a board of directors headed by Sindolfa. The members of this communal bank have a variety of businesses such as: retail trade, production and services.

Sindolfa says that she has been working with Pro Mujer for a year and a half, and joined at the invitation of a loan officer. Now she works selling woven blankets, an activity that she has been doing for 3 years.

The loan that she will take now will increase her capital; she will purchase wool in the Ceja (a commercial area in El Alto) that she will use to make her products. She will sell the products via advance orders. This type of work allows her to generate resources to support her family as best she can, as she is married and has 2 children.

When asked what she likes about Pro Mujer, she answered that she likes the health services.

In this group: Yola, Franz Noe , Adelaida, Otilia, Fermina, Amalia , Sindolfa, Angelica
