A loan of $2,875 helped a member to buy soft drinks.

Mayaqui 2012 Group's story

The Mayaqui 2012 communal bank will begin its first cycle with Pro Mujer as part of the Juan Pablo community center. It is comprised of eight members and run by a board of directors. Betzabe is the president. The businesses that the members carry out are varied such as knitting sweaters, selling food, selling clothes, selling pork, a food kiosk, and manufacturing balls.

This is the first time that Bezabe has worked with Pro Mujer. She joined the institution by invitation from a member. She currently has a business providing food and beverage services, which she has been doing for years. She learned how to do this from her previous jobs.

The loan that she will now take out is to buy soft drinks from the promoters who come to her business. She later sells them at stand where she sells. Working this way allows her to generate income to support her family. She is married and has two children.

In this group: Betzabe, Bethsabe, Santusa , Felipa, Rufina, Elena, Juana , Lourdes
