Las Dulcineas Group's story

The Communal Bank “Las Dulcineas” is starting its first loan cycle with Pro Mujer as part of the Juan Pablo II Community Center. The group consists of six members and is led by a Board of Directors headed by Sra. Cielo. The members of the Communal Bank engage in various businesses in order to get ahead such as operating a coffee kiosk, making crafts from alpaca wool, selling bed sheets, selling quilts, selling AVON products, and selling Yanbal products.

Sra. Cielo says that this is the first time she has worked with Pro Mujer. She joined after receiving an invitation from a friend. Cielo currently manages a business selling coffee from a kiosk.

The loan she is now receiving will be used to increase her capital for buying bread, meat, and other supplies so that she can start a new service of selling hamburgers. Working in this manner enables her to generate income to support her family as much as possible. Cielo is single and has two children.

When asked what she likes about Pro Mujer, Cielo said that she enjoys the health services.

In this group: Cielo Rene, Jehidy Angela , Clendy Jobanka, Teresa, Diana, Maria Joaquina
