Colque Patha Group's story

The “COLQUE PATHA” communal bank will begin their twenty-fifth loan with Pro Mujer as a part of the ‘Central Hub of the Andes’, it is made up of eight members and is managed by a committee headed by Mrs. Estefa. The businesses of the members of the communal bank are different and include a local grocery store, clothing store, food sales, gift sales, poultry shop, and a call center.

Mrs. Estefa has been a part of Pro Mujer for ten years; she became a member after a friend recommended the communal bank to her. At present, she has a business selling VIVA (a calling service) she has worked for several years in this trade.

The loan will be used to increase her merchandize (by buying calling cards wholesale) from the corporation that will be placed in her store. This business will help her support her family since she is married and has three children.

When asked what she enjoys of Pro Mujer, Mrs. Estefa says that she enjoys spending time with the other members.

In this group: Estefa, Yobana, Francisca, Olga, Maria Isabel, Maria, Ivy Lidia, Ruth Margarita
