A loan of $2,625 helped a member to buy cell phone accessories.

Kantutitas De San Simon Group's story

The communal bank “KANTUTITAS DE SAN SIMON” will begin its third cycle with Pro Mujer, as part of the focus on the Pan American Highway. This bank is comprised of eight members and is governed by a board of which Martha is the president. The businesses which the communal bank members run are varied among them. There is: blanket weaving, selling miscellaneous items, making bags and tissues, making skirts, and making cell phone accessories.

Yolanda Martha says that she's been working with Pro Mujer for one year and that she joined the institution at the invitation of a developer. At this time she has a business selling cell phone accessories that she has been running for many years.

The loan she will take out is to increase her capital (buy cell phone accessories) that will pay for the Tumusla, and later she will sell it at her business location. This type of work permits her to generate income to help her family, since she is single and has three children.

When asked what she likes about Pro Mujer, she answers that she like the savings and meeting up with the other members.
