Kory Pankaritas Group's story

The “KORY PANKARITA” communal bank will start its fifth cycle in Pro Mujer, as a part of the Villa Exaltación center. It is made up of nine members and led by a board of directors in which Justina is the president. The association members have various businesses. Among them are: selling fruit, making wooden boxes, selling blankets, making shoes, sewing sports clothing, transportation, selling earrings, selling decorations.

Justina indicates that she has been a member of Pro Mujer for two years, joining at the invitation of a friend. At present she has a business selling food. She has done this for years, starting with the loans she took out from the institution.

The loan she will take out now is to increase her merchandise (to buy rice, sugar, oil, etc.). She will get all of this at the market and after preparation, she will sell it at her sales stall. This work allows her to generate resources to help her family as much as possible, as she is single and has four children.

When asked what she likes about Pro Mujer, she responds that she likes the meetings.

In this group: Justina , Jaquelinne Margott, Ximena , Bernaldina, Ketty Elizabeth, Maria Eugenia, Rebeca , Ximena, Catalina
