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

Porvenir Group's story

The Porvenir communal association will begin its second loan cycle with Pro Mujer, as part of the Centro Juan Pablo. There are eight members and it is run by a board headed by Juana. The businesses that the association members carry out are varied, including baby shoes, selling cinnamon ice cream, making mattresses, selling condiments, selling furniture and woodworking, selling sneakers, selling chicken, and selling food.

Juana indicates that she joined Pro Mujer four years ago at the invitation of her friend. Currently she has a business selling socks that she is working on recently.

The loan that she will take out now is to increase her merchandise (buying socks), which she will acquire from the markets and later sell in her stall. This form of work allows her to generate resources to support her family in every way possible, since she is married and has two children.

When you ask Juana what she likes about Pro Mujer, she responds that she likes to share the health and credit training with the group.
