A loan of $2,250 helped a member to buy meat.


Rio De Plata Group's story

The “Río de Plata” communal bank will start its first cycle with Pro Mujer as part of the Los Andes focal center. It has 8 members led by a governing board headed by Virginia. The members of this communal bank carry out a variety of businesses. Among them we have: liquor store, candy store, sweater knitting, crafts making, graphic design, beef offal and minibus helper.

Virginia indicates that she’s worked in Pro Mujer for two cycles and that she joined the institution invited by her girlfriends. She has been selling meat for several years since it’s a family business.

The loan she’s requesting is to increase capital (to purchase beef offal in the rural areas at wholesale and then resell in her sales point). This way of working allows her to generate income to support her family since she’s single and has three children. When asked what she likes about Pro Mujer she answers that she likes the training.
