A loan of $1,600 helped a member purchase stones and rubies for jewelry.

Agape Group's story

The communal bank "AGAPE" will start its first cycle with Pro Mujer through the Andes regional office. It is made up of six members and is directed by a board headed by Señora Porfiria. The member's businesses activities vary and include skirt sales, jewelry sales, crafts and printed materials.

Señora Porfiria says that this is the first time that she has worked with Pro Mujer and that she joined the institution because a friend invited her. Currently, she has a business selling jewelry. She will use the loan she is requesting to buy stones and rubies from La Ceja and then later sell them to vendors at the markets. This type of work allows her to generate income to support her family as she is married and has two children.

When we asked her what she likes about Pro Mujer she responded that she likes the health training.
