A loan of $3,475 helped a member to buy a food cart.

Corazon Unido Group's story

The “Corazón Unido” (United Heart) communal bank will start its second cycle in Pro Mujer as part of the Santiago II Focal Center. It has 8 members led by a governing board headed by María. The members carry out a variety of businesses among which we have production, sale of turnovers, services and commerce.

María indicates that she’s been part of Pro Mujer communal associations for years having been invited to join by her fellow members. Currently she has a business that she’s had for years making and selling turnovers. She learned this activity from a previous one.

The loan she’ll take out now is to buy a food cart that she’ll use to transport her products. Once she makes the products she will sell them in an ambulatory fashion in various squares in the city of El Alto. This business helps her support her family since she has a spouse and four children.

When asked what she likes about Pro Mujer, she answers that she likes the health training and the credit.

In this group: Maria, Teresa Carmen, Teodora Magdalena , Lucia , Wendy Giovana, Justina, Janeth Wilma, Celia Vilma
