A loan of $1,925 helped a member to buy fabric.

Llamitas De Oro Group's story

The “LLAMITAS DE ORO” community bank are about to start their first loan cycle with Pro Mujer, as part of the German Busch regional office. This group has seven members and is run by a board of directors which is led by Beatriz. The businesses that the members of the bank are engaged in are varied and include: selling lamb, sewing skirts, braiding blankets, making wallets and running an Entel. store.

Beatriz tells us that she has been working with Pro Mujer for two years and that she joined through an invitation from a friend. She has a sewing business that she has been working in for years, having learned the business from her mom.

The loan that Beatriz is currently taking out will be used to increase her capital (buying fabric). She will buy her fabric in Cochabamba and then sell it in her sales location. This work allows her to make money with which to support her family. Beatriz is single and has two children.

When we asked her what she likes about Pro Mujer, Beatriz replied that she likes everything.

In this group: Beatriz , Jhenny Lizethe, Maria Cristina , Daniela , Mauricia , Fabiana , Catalina
