Flor De Haba Group's story

The “Flor de Haba” communal bank will start its fifth cycle with Pro Mujer, as part of the Patacamaya regional office. There are 12 members and the group is led by a board of directors, of which Señora Esperanza is the treasurer. The members of the communal bank are involved in a variety of businesses, including selling food, a neighborhood store, construction, driving a taxi, selling bread, selling sundry items and selling toasted sandwiches.

Señora Esperanza indicates that this is her fifth cycle with Pro Mujer and that she joined the institution because she was invited by a promoter. Currently she has a business selling food which she has been doing for years, having learned from her sister.

The loan that she will take is to increase her capital for the purchase of grocereies which she will adquire in El Alto and later sell in her community. Working in this way allows her to generate resources to support her family. She lives with a partner, and they have a child.

When she was asked what she likes about Pro Mujer, Esperanza responded that she likes the health services.

In this group: Virginia, Alejandra, Hugo , Humberto, Lourdes, Mario, Maria Elena, Maria Eugenia , Antonia, Esperanza, Nancy , Dora
