A loan of $2,875 helped a member to purchase plastic materials.

Estrellitas Group's story

The Community Association “ESTRELLITAS” (Little Stars), is in its second program cycle with Pro Mujer, as a part of the Focal Villa Adela Center. This group is made up of eight members and is managed by a board of directors, of which Sebastiana is president. The members all work in various businesses, including: sales of salchipapas (a hot dog and fried potatoes dish), electronic games, shawl making, food sales, fruit sales, etc.

Sebastiana became a member of the Pro Mujer association about a year and a half ago. She was invited to join by the institution’s promoters. She presently makes a living selling plastic materials, a business that she has had for some time.

She plans to utilize the support from this loan to purchase additional materials for her business, which she will buy in the markets in La Paz, and then resell in the communities in her area. This work helps her to support her family. She is single and has eight children.

When asked what she likes about Pro Mujer, Sebastiana commented that she likes the savings, as well as their work in health and patient payments.

In this group: Sebastiana, Valeriana, Marilda Rosa, Milenca Marian, Margarita, Lily , Vilma Betty, Juana
