A loan of $2,150 helped a member to buy wool.

Ayrampito Group's story

The “Ayrampito” communal bank will start its first cycle in Pro Mujer as part of the Los Andes focal center. It has 8 members led by a governing board headed by Regina. The members of the communal bank carry out a variety of businesses. Among them we have: sewing athletic wear, weaving skirts and blankets, onion sales, weaving multi-colored cloth, neighborhood store, blanket weaving, crafts and fruit sales.

Regina indicates that this is the first time she’s worked with Pro Mujer and that she joined the institution thanks to the invitation from a promoter. She currently has a business weaving blankets that she’s had for years.

The loan she’ll take out now is to increase capital. She will buy wool in the street markets at wholesale and after she makes her items she’ll sell them based on prior orders. This was of working allows her to generate resources to support her family because she’s single and has six children. When asked what she likes about Pro Mujer, she answers that she likes the health services.
