Morocollo Group's story

A.C. “MOROCOLLO” will start its first cycle with Pro Mujer, as part of the Centro Achacachi which consists of 9 members and is lead by a board headed by Señora Basilia. The members of the communal bank run a variety of businesses among which are: trade, food sales, farming,sale of chickens, grocery store.

Señora Basilia says that this is the first time she works with Pro Mujer at the invitation of a promoter. Currently she has a grocery store and a vegetable store which she has run for many years.

The loan she will currently take out is to increase her merchandise (to buy groceries) for the store which she will buy in La Paz and sell in her neighbourhood. This kind of workflow allows her to generate the resources to support her family all she can as she lives with a partner and has 3 children.

When asked what she likes about Pro Mujer, she says that she likes the training.
