A loan of $3,550 helped a member to purchase seeds.

Caminantes Group's story

The communal bank "Caminantes" [Walkers] will initiate its fifth loan cycle with Pro Mujer as part of the regional office in Collpani. This group is composed of eight members and is led by a board of directors headed by Ignacia. The businesses that the members of the association are engaged in vary between them and include: the sale of fruit, colognes and perfumes, quilts, detergents, hand woven sweaters, sodas and gelatin, vegetables, and the sale of meat.

Ignacia, explains that she has worked with Pro Mujer for twenty-two years, entering the group at the invitation of a promoter. Currently, she has a business growing and selling fruit. She has carried this work out for many years, learning the same trade since her childhood. The loan that she will take now is to raise capital for seeds that she will purchase from the supply stores, and later market in her own retail space. This type of work will allow her to generate resources to help her family to the greatest extent possible, as she is married and has three children.

When asked what she likes about Pro Mujer, she replies that she likes the savings.

In this group: Ignacia Loyola, Berta Viviana, Clotilde, Maria Roxana, Carmela, Margarita, Lucia, Maruja
