A loan of $2,000 helped a member buy blankets.


Rosales Group's story

The communal bank, “ROSALES” will begin their second loan cycle with Pro Mujer as a part of the Centro Senkata. It is made up of seven members and is managed by a board headed by Mrs. Victoria. The businesses of the members of the communal bank are different; they sell meat, blankets, and are in sales, production and services.

Mrs. Victoria says this is her seventh loan with Pro Mujer; she joined the group by her friend’s invitation. At present she has a business selling blankets that she started with her aunt.

The loan will be used to increase her stock (by buying blankets) by buying in the city of Oruro and selling the items during the weekend fairs. This trade allows her to have enough income to support her family as much as possible since she is married and has three children.

When asked what she enjoys of Pro Mujer, Mrs. Victoria says that she enjoys the attention and the training.

In this group: Victoria, Liduvina, Cristina, Irene, Celia , Virginia, Olga
