A loan of $1,775 helped a member to buy wool.

Los Alamos Group's story

The “Los Alamos” communal bank will start its first cycle in Pro Mujer as part of the Alto Lima focal center. It has 6 members led by a governing board headed by Gabriela. The members of the communal bank are engaged in a variety of businesses among which we have: sweater making, weaving and selling sweaters, clothes sales and cosmetics sales.

Gabriela indicates that this is the first time she’s worked in Pro Mujer and that she joined the institution thanks to an invitation from a promotion. She currently works making sweaters, a business she’s had for years having learned it from her parents.

The loan she’ll take out now is to increase her capital. She will buy wool from the distributor and once her items are made will sell them based on prior orders. This way of working allows her to generate income to support her family.

In this group: Gabriela Elvira, Lizeth Indira, Dhelia Vardra, Tania Ana , Maricruz, Teresa Rosa
