A loan of $1,475 helped a member to buy milk and flavor essences.

Rosas De Rosas Pampa Group's story

The "Rosas de Rosas Pampa" communal bank will start its first loan cycle in Pro Mujer, as part of the Villa Exaltación Center. It is made up of six members, and led by a board of directors, of which Rufina is the president.

The businesses carried on the members of the communal bank are varied, and among them we have: construction helper, sewing skirts, selling food, handicrafts with pearls, selling fruit, and selling ice cream.

Rufina says she joined Pro Mujer three years ago, at the invitation of friends. At the present time, she has a business selling ice cream, which she has been working at for years, having learned it from her sister. The loan she will take out now is for helping her business grow, by buying milk and flavor essences that she will acquire in La Ceja. After making her product, she sells it at her stand.

This form of work allows her to generate income for supporting her family as much as she can; as she is married, and has six children. When asked what she likes about Pro Mujer, she answers that she likes everything about our institution.

In this group: Rufina Luisa , Irma, Mena , Sonia , Regina, Ceferina
