Mujeres Emprendedoras Group's story

The Communal Bank “Mujeres Emprendedoras” (Enterprising Women) is starting its first loan cycle with Pro Mujer as part of the Los Andes Community Center. This group consists of seven members and is led by a Board of Directors headed by Sra. Olga. The members of his Communal Bank engage in various business in order to get ahead such as managing a sewing workshop, selling plastics, making woven clothes, selling peppers, and selling clothes.

Sra. Olga says this is the first time she has worked with Pro Mujer. She joined the organization after being invited by one of the other group members. Olga currently has a business selling quinoa juice and has been working for five months.

The loan she is receiving now will be used to increase her capital so that she can buy sugar, a necessary ingredient in preparing her juices. Olga acquires her supplies in La Ceja and then sells her products at her shop. Working in this manner allows her to generate income to support her family. Olga is single and has two children.

In this group: Olga Bertha , Nanacy Dora , Rosmery, Elizabeth Martha, Marina Rosmin , Natividad , Gladys Gloria
