Lurawisa Group's story

The A.C. "Lurawisa" began its 20th cycle in the communal bank Pro Mujer as part of the Panamercan focus. This group is made up of 7 members and is managed by Senora Celia. The businesses of the various members include small shops, handcrafted table cloths, bakeries, and school supplies.

Celia has had a business selling school supplies for many years, and this is the first time she has worked with Pro Mujer, joining through an invitation. The credit they are requesting will help all the businesses, and Celia will use her share to purchase school supplies in La Paz, which she then sells in her area. This work enables her to generate income to support her family. She is married and has 3 children. When asked what she likes about Pro Mujer, she said it helps her to increase her savings.

In this group: Domitila, Adaluz , Maricel, Nancy , Raquel, Nayssa Flora , Ans Maria, Justina
