A loan of $2,625 helped a member to buy flour.


Ayo Ayo Group's story

The communal association Ayo Ayo will begin its first cycle with Pro Mujer as part of the focal center Patacamaya. It's made up of nine members and is led by a board whose president is Luisa. The business that the members of the communal association advance are varied. Between them there is: vegetable sales, lubricant sales, a bakery, TIGO card sales, livestock sales, and a neighborhood store.

Luisa indicates that this is the first time that she's working with Pro Mujer and that she joined the institution after being invited by a promoter. Currently she has a bakery business that she's had for years, and which she learned from her husband.

She will take out a loan to raise her capital (buying flour) which she will obtain from the market and subsequently will sell in her community after baking. This kind of work allows her to generate resources with which to support her family since she cohabits and has two children.

When she is asked what she likes about Pro Mujer, she responds that she likes the loan and health trainings and the insurance.
