Agua Llamaya Group's story

The “Agua Llamaya” communal bank will start its first cycle with Pro Mujer as part of the Patacamaya focal center. It has ten members led by a governing board headed by Celia. The communal bank members are engaged in a variety of businesses such as: fruit grower, transport, fruit sales and neighborhood store.

Celia indicates that this is the first time she’s worked with Pro Mujer and that she joined the institution thanks to an invitation from a promoter. She currently grows and sells fruit, something she’s been doing for years having learned it from her parents.

The loan she’ll take out is to pay the lease on an orchard to grow fruit in her community and later on when it’s harvested she’ll sell it in various street markets in El Alto. This way of working allows her to generate income to support her family since she’s married and has five children.

In this group: Celia , Gualberto, Viviana, Simona Maruja, Ever Efrain , Elvira, Juan Angel , Mercedes, Maria Elena , Virginia
