A loan of $2,225 helped a member to buy spare parts.

Santa Rosa De Lima Group's story

The “SANTA ROSA DE LIMA” Communal Bank is starting its fourth cycle in Pro Mujer as part of the German Busch Regional Office. It has eight members and is directed by a board of directors headed by Señora Lucia. The members' businesses are varied and include: trade, production, and services.

Señora Lucia says that this is her second year in a Pro Mujer communal bank. She joined at the invitation of a promoter. She currently has a business dealing with spare parts for vehicles. She has had this business for seventeen years.

The loan that she will now take out is to increase her merchandise (with the purchase of vehicle spare parts) which she purchases from a distributor and then sells in her stall. This work allows her to generate an income to support her family where possible, as she is in a common-law marriage and has seven children.

When asked what she likes about Pro Mujer, she replies that she likes everything.
