Rosas De Chijipina Group's story

The lending group "Rosas de Chijini" will begin its first cycle with Pro Mujer as part of the Centro Achacachi. The group has 8 members and is led by a board of directors headed by Jenny. The group members' businesses are varied and include: weaving cloths, commerce, production and services.

Jenny says that this is the first time she has joined Pro Mujer. For many years, she has been waving and selling blankets. She learned the trade from her mother.

The loan that she will take out is to increase her merchandise by buying wool in La Paz; later she will sell her products in the markets. This work has allowed her to earn income to support her family as much as possible. She lives with her husband and has one son.

When asked what she likes about Pro Mujer, she says that she enjoys the training.
