A loan of $1,400 helped a member to buy wool.

16 De Abril Group's story

The lending club "April 16th" will begin their first cycle with Pro Mujer as part of the focal center of Villa Adela. The group is made up of 7 members and they have a board of directors led by Constancia. The members have various businesses including embroidering tablecloths, making macrame, selling food, selling wool, and a store.

Constancia says that this is her first time being part of an association. For some years now she has had a business selling crafts, a trade that she learned from her brother-in-law. The loan this cycle is to increase her merchandise by purchasing wool in the city of El Alto and later selling it in her stall. This form of work allows her to support her family - she is single and has 7 children.

She asked what she likes about Pro Mujer, she says that she likes the meetings.

In this group: Costancia, Flabia Pasesa , Arminda , Veronica, Eugenia, Julia, Rosa
