A loan of $3,500 helped a member to buy candy.

Esperanza De Pucarani Group's story

The “Esperanza de Pucarani” communal bank will start its first cycle in Pro Mujer as part of the Santiago II Focal Center. It has 11 members led by a governing board headed by Irma. The members of this communal bank carry out a variety of businesses. Among them we have production, services and commerce.

Irma indicates that this is the first time she’s joined a Pro Mujer communal bank having joined thanks to an invitation from one of her girlfriends. She currently has a candy store that she’s had for several years now.

The loan she’ll take out now is to increase capital. She will buy candy in La Ceja to then resell in her store. This way of working allows her to generate income to help her family since she’s married and has four children. When asked what she likes about Pro Mujer, she answers the training and the health services.

In this group: Irma, Reyna Teresa , Viviana , Angelina , Ynes , Raquel, Claudia, Nancy Amalia , Luciano, Felicidad , Sabina
