A loan of $3,225 helped a member to purchase provisions.

Con Suerte Group's story

The communal bank “CON SUERTE” ("with luck") will begin its first loan cycle with Pro Mujer. As part of the focal center of Patacamaya, it is made up of eleven members and is directed by a board of which the lady Domitila is the president. The businesses that the members of the communal bank manage are varied, including: food sales, bakery, neighborhood store, woven cloth production, tapestries, potato sales, and chauffeur.

Domitila indicates that this is the first time she has worked with Pro Mujer and that she joined the organization by invitation of a loan officer. Currently, she has as a business a neighborhood store where she has been working for many years.

The loan that she will take out is to increase her capital (to purchase provisions) which she will acquire in La Paz, and then sell in her community. This type of work allows her to generate resources to support her family. She is married and has two children.

When she was asked what she likes about Pro Mujer, she responded that she likes the health training and the flexible credit.
