Alaxpacha 2 Group's story

The Communal Bank “Alaxpacha II” is starting its second loan cycle with Pro Mujer as part of the Germán Busch Community Center. This group consists of six members and is led by a Board of Directors headed by Sra. Janneth. The members of the Communal Bank engage in various businesses in the retail, manufacturing, and service sectors in order to get ahead.

Sra. Janneth says this is her sixth year of participating in a Communal Bank through Pro Mujer. She joined after being invited by a friend. Janneth currently has a business selling knitted articles and has been working for eight years.

The loan she is receiving now will be used to buy a machine that she will purchase from a distributor. She will use it for making knitted articles to sell at the fairs. Working in this manner enables her to generate income to support her family as much as possible. Janneth is married and has two children.

When asked what she likes about Pro Mujer, Janneth said that she enjoys everything.

In this group: Janneth Lourdes , Paulina, Lourdes Susana, Rossy , Justina , Maritza
