Poderosas De Comaravi Group's story

The “PODEROSAS DE CUMARAVI” Communal Bank will start its first loan cycle with Pro Mujer, as part of the Santiago II regional hub. It is made up of nine members and is led by a board of directors chaired by Sra. Lourdes. The members engage in a variety of businesses such as: shoe sales, a meat market, flower sales, ice cream sales, clothing sales, a cafeteria and sweater sales.

Sra. Lourdes notes that this is the first time she has worked with Pro Mujer and that she joined the institution on the invitation of a promoter. Currently she has a business selling footwear and has had it for some time.

The loan that she will take out is to increase her capital to buy footwear she will acquire from distributors and later market in her commercial space. This type of work enables her to generate resources to support her family. She is married and has five children.
