A loan of $950 helped a member to buy fabric.

Dalias Group's story

The Dalias Communal Bank will start its first cycle with Pro Mujer as part of the Panamericana Community Center. It is comprised of six members, and it is led by its Board of Directors. Elvira is the head of the Board. The members of the communal bank carry out various business activities like selling aprons, handicrafts, and selling food.

Elvira points out that she is working with Pro Mujer for the first time. She joined the institution by invitation from a loan officer in the area. She currently has a business making and selling aprons. She has been doing this for seven years.

The loan she is requesting is to increase her capital (to buy fabric) that she will get in La Ceja. She will later make the aprons, and she will sell them at the 16 de Julio market.

This way of working allows her to generate resources to support her family. She lives in a common-law-marriage, and she has two children.
