A loan of $2,925 helped a member to buy alpaca wool.

Villa Ancara Group's story

The “Villa Ancora” communal bank will start its first cycle in Pro Mujer as part of the Senkata Center. It has ten members led by a governing board headed by Agripina. The businesses the members of the communal bank operate are varied. Among them we have: commerce, production and services.

Agripina indicates that this is the first cycle she’s worked with Pro Mujer having joined thanks to an invitation from a promoter. At present she has a crafts business weaving and raising animals that she’s been operating for a year now. She started the business taking advantage of raising alpacas and llamas that she’s done since she was a little girl.

The loan she’ll take out now is to increase capital (to buy alpaca wool) which she’ll buy from the factory and then make items based on orders. This way of working allows her to generate income to support her family since she has three children.

When asked what she likes about Pro Mujer she answers that she likes the health clinic and the savings.
