A loan of $3,850 helped a member to buy groceries.

Flor Kantutita Group's story

The community association "FLOR KANTUTITA" began its seventh cycle with Pro Mujer, as part of the focal center Germán Busch. It is made up of eleven members and it is guided by a board of directors headed by Martha. The members of the community association go forward with various businesses, among them we have: food sales, cosmetics sales, kebab sales, blanket weaving, sewing aprons, making tulmas, driver, and caretaker.

Martha says that she has been working with Pro Mujer for more than five years, and she joined the institution at the invitation of her sister. Currently she has a grocery business that she's been working at for years.

The loan that she will take out now is to increase her capital (for buying groceries) which she will buy in the commercial sector of the city ("La Ceja") and later sell at the community marketplaces. This type of work allows her to generate the resources to support her family, as she is single with four children.

When asked what she likes about Pro Mujer, she responds that she likes health, personal attention, and the service.
