A loan of $850 helped a member to buy wool.

Nuevas Amigas Group's story

The A.C. Nuevas Amigas will begin its first loan cycle with the German Busch regional center of Pro Mujer, and is made up of 6 members with a board headed by Concepción. The members of the communal bank are involved in various types of businesses, among which are the sales of DVDs, nylon stockings, food, braided rugs, macrame weavings, and bread.

Concepción says that this is her first time working with Pro Mujer and that she joined the community bank through the invitation of a promotion. Currently she has a knitting business and has been doing this work for some years, learning it from her family.

The loan that she is now asking for is to raise capital to use in the purchase of wool from the 16 de Julio Market, which she will then sell. This way of work permits her to earn income in order to support her family; she is single.

When asked what she likes about Pro Mujer, she responds that she likes everything about it.
