A loan of $1,275 helped a member to buy wool.

Flor Kantuta De San Roque Group's story

The Flor Kantuta de San Roque communal bank will begin its first cycle with Pro Mujer as part of the Panamericana regional office. It is made up of six members who have a board of directors with Martha as the head. The businesses carried out by the members of the communal bank are varied, among which we have sewing jackets, knitting wool gloves, selling vegetables, and carpentry.

Martha indicates that she is part of the bank for the first time, because she has a business knitting wool sweaters. The loan in this cycle is to increase her capital buying wool that she will acquire in the markets in La Paz. After making the sweaters she will sell on request. This form of work helps her support her family because she is single and has one child.

When asked what she likes about Pro Mujer, she responds that she enjoyed the training on health and credit with her associates.
