A loan of $2,450 helped a member to buy fruit.

Yanapiri Group's story

The Yanapiri group will start their 23rd cycle with Pro Mujer, as part of Centro Senkata [a neighborhood in El Alto]. They have eight members and are lead by an executive committee, with Señora Rose at the head. The members of this communal group carry on with various businesses, including among them: undergarment sales, hat sales, pasta sales, potato and meat sales, fruit sales, and school goods sales.

Rose points out that this is her second cycle working with Pro Mujer; she joined by invitation from her sister-in-law. Currently she has a business selling fruit, which she has worked for years.

The loan that she will take out now is to increase her capital (purchase fruit), which she will buy in La Ceja and then sell at her stall. This form of work allows her to generate resources to support her family, as she is married with two children.

When asked what she likes about Pro Mujer, Rose answered that she liked saving.
