Alpacoma Group's story

The “ALPACOMA” community association will begin its ninth cycle with Pro Mujer, as part of the central office in the Andes. It’s made up of eight members and is directed by a board of directors, where Katina is the President. The other members of the association run various other businesses. We have making pants, furniture sales, grocery sales, food sales, porcelain making, fish sales, smoothie sales, clothing sales, tomato sales, and vest making.

Noelia says that she has been with Pro Mujer for two cycles, having joined after being invited by her sister. She currently has a furniture selling business. She developed this business years ago, having learned it from her mother.

This loan will increase her working capital (buy lumber). She will buy from the suppliers in the city of El Alto and then sell it at her point of sale. This type of work will allow her to generate income to support her family. She is married and has two children.

When asked what she likes about Pro Mujer, she says that she likes the health training.
