A loan of $2,050 helped a member to buy school supplies.


Ñustas Group's story

The ÑUSTAS community bank are about to start their first loan cycle with Pro Mujer, as part of the Juan Pablo II regional office. The bank has seven members and is managed by a board of directors which is led by Flora. The businesses that the members of this community bank are engaged in are varied and include commerce, production and services.

Flora says that she has been working with Pro Mujer for eleven years and joined when the institution started out. She currently runs a business selling school supplies (stationery and miscellaneous goods). She has been in this business for ten years.

Flora will use the loan that she is requesting to increase her capital (buying school supplies). She will buy her supplies from wholesale stores and she will sell them in her stationery store. This work enables her to make income with which to support her family. Flora is married and has three children.

When we asked her what she likes about Pro Mujer, Flora replied that she likes the health services.
