A loan of $4,575 helped a member to buy rice.


Mina Chojlla Group's story

The communal association "Mina Chojlla" will begin its eleventh loan cycle with Pro Mujer, as a part of the Community Center of the Andes. They are made up of nine members and guided by a board, led by Juana. The businesses that the members of the community organization have are varied, and among them are a shoe shop, sales of chili peppers, furniture sales, food sales, grocery sales, weaving blankets, and earring sales.

Juana says it has been six years since she joined the communal association with Pro Mujer, joining because of regional advertising. Currently, she has a business in food sales which she has been working at for years.

The loan which she is getting is to buy more merchandise (to buy rice), which she would acquire in the city of El Alto and later prepare and sell at her place of business. This business helps her to support her family, as she is married and they have three children.

When asked what she likes about Pro Mujer, she says that she likes the meetings with her friends.

In this group: Juana , Victoria, Virginia, Demetria, Bethza , Teodora, Jhovanna, Sofía , Susana
