A loan of $1,575 helped a member to buy fruit.

Kory Inti Group's story

The communal bank "Kory Inti" will start its first loan cycle with Pro Mujer at the Germán Busch central office. This group has 6 members who are led by a board of directors headed by Yola. The members of this communal bank have a variety of businesses such as: macrame, cellular phone sales, blanket sales, fruit sales, and a carpentry workshop.

Yola states that this is the first year that she has been in a Pro Mujer communal bank; she joined the group at the invitation of a loan officer. She currently has a business selling fruit that she has been working in for two years. She learned this business from her mother.

The loan that she is taking now will be used to increase her capital (to buy more fruit.) She buys her fruit in the Tejara area, and later sells it from her stall. This type of work allows her to generate resources to support her family as best she can. She is married and has 2 children.

When asked what she likes about Pro Mujer, she responded that she likes the savings accounts and the health services.

In this group: Yola , Giovana Soledad , Jimena Soledad, Angelica , Erika Blanca , Daysi Shirley
