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

Cordillera Group's story

The A.C. “Cordillera” (“Mountain Range” Communal Association) will start its sixth cycle with Pro Mujer as part of the Los Andes Community Center. It is composed of eight members, guided by a directive board presided over by Rufina. The members of the Communal Association engage in different activities such as: running a grocery store, selling cloth, selling salchipapas*, selling construction materials, selling dressings, running a general store.

Rufina says she has been working with Pro Mujer for fifteen cycles, and that she became a member of the institution thanks to the invitation of a friend. She is a retailer, and she has been selling car accessories for some years.

The loan she is now requesting will be used to increase her working capital. She will buy car accessories from wholesale retailers, and she then sell them at fairs. This type of job allows her to earn money to support her family, as she is married and has a child.

When asked why she likes Pro Mujer, she answers that she likes its atmosphere.

*Salchipapa is a typical dish composed of sliced pan-fried beef hot dogs or sausages and French fries
