A loan of $1,750 helped a member to buy flour.

Afroditas Group's story

The “Afroditas” communal bank will start its fourth cycle with Pro Mujer as part of the Villa Exaltación Center. It has 8 members led by a governing board headed by Roxana. The members of the communal bank carry out a variety of businesses. Among them we have: baked goods making, cosmetics sales, lace veil making, Yambal products sales, bookstore and metal furniture making.

Roxana indicates that this is her third year in Pro Mujer having joined thanks to an invitation from one of her girlfriends. She currently has a business making baked goods that she’s been operating for the last 20 months with help from her mother.

The loan she’ll take out now is to buy flour to make her products. She will buy this material in La Ceja and after making her items will sell them in Ciudad Satélite. This way of working allows her to generate resources to support her family in whatever way is possible because she’s single and has a son. When asked what she likes about Pro Mujer she answers that she likes the service.

In this group: Roxana Maria, Maria Luisa, Ana Carolina, Mariana Luz, Jeersy Olimpia , Neyda Soledad , Pamela Reyna, Eulogia
