A loan of $1,925 helped a member to buy canned goods.

Luz De Vida Group's story

The “Luz de Vida” communal bank will be starting its sixth cycle in Pro Mujer as part of the Panamericana communal center. It is comprised of eight members, and it is run by a board of directors. Juana is the treasurer. The businesses that the members carry on are varied such as a neighborhood store, sales, production, and services.

This is the first time that Juana has worked with Pro Mujer. She joined the institution by invitation from a member. She currently has a neighborhood store where she has been working for years.

The loan that she will now take out is to buy canned goods. She buys them in La Ceja, and she later sells them at her store. This work allows her to generate resources to support her family.

When asked what she likes about Pro Mujer she answered that she likes to share with the women, and she likes the clinic.

In this group: Albina, Remedios , Candelaria, Beatriz, Maria Teodora , Juana, Sandra Lucy , Yanet
