A loan of $3,375 helped a member to buy groceries for her business.


Premio Mayor Group's story

The Premio Mayor Community Bank will begin its first loan cycle with Pro Mujer as part of the Juan Pablo II program. There are eight members in the group which is led by a committee headed by Sra. Adelaida. The members run various businesses such as selling cheese, making shawls, selling soft drinks, making and selling skirts, selling artifacts, food and groceries.

Sra. Adelaida has worked with Pro Mujer for 22 years, starting with the organization at the invitation of her aunt. Currently she has a corner store which she began some time ago after learning how to run a store from her mother. The loan she will receive this time is to be used to buy more supplies which she will obtain in Peru and then sell to stores and institutions. Her job enables her to support her family--she is married and has four children.

When Adelaida is asked what she likes about Pro Mujer, she replies that she likes everything.

In this group: Adelaida, Everista, Aurelia , Miriam, Reyna Guadalupe , Virginia Anastacia, Aneth Paola , Felipina
