Mayaqui Sartasiñani Group's story

The A.C. “MAYAQUI SARTASIÑANI” group began its 11th cycle with Pro Mujer in the area of the province of Germán Busch. They have 11 members and a board of directors headed by Agustina. The businesses of the members of the communal bank are varied and among them are sweaters, selling clothing, neighborhood grocery, ice cream shop, seamstress, plumbing, handicrafts of blankets and scarves, food sales, and shoe sales.

Agustina says that she has been working with Pro Mujer for 4 years and that she joined the bank at the invitation of neighbors. Currently she has a hardware store and has been working for some years, learning the business from her husband.

The loan that she is asking for now will be used to increase her capital, to buy tools, that will bring people to her store, so she can sell the tools in her business. This form of work permits her to generate income to support her family as she lives in a partnership and has 4 children. When asked what she likes about Pro Mujer, she says she likes the discussions of health.
