Alaxpacha Ii Group's story

The “ALAXPACHA II” loan group will begin its third loan cycle with Pro Mujer, as part of the central focus of Germán Busch. The group is made up of eight members and is led by Mrs. Gladys. The group members work in a variety of businesses including: sewing comforters, selling groceries, selling Yanbal products (jewelry and cosmetics), sewing jackets, weaving blankets, selling cheese, and buying products for resale.

Mrs. Gladys shares that she joined Pro Mujer two loan cycles ago, and that she joined the institution after a friend invited her. She currently has a business sewing and also selling used comforters. She has done this work for many years.

The loan she is requesting is to increase her capital (buy fabric) from La Paz and later sell in markets and fairs. This job allows her to earn money to support her family. She is married and has three children.

When asked what she likes about Pro Mujer, she answered that she likes sharing with her group members.

In this group: Gladys Roxana, Carolina, Melany Gabriela , Lucia , Josefina, Lourdes Susana, Vilma, Maritza
