A loan of $4,500 helped a member to buy clothing.

Laguna Azul Group's story

The “DIVINAS” community association will begin its second cycle with Pro Mujer, as part of the central office in Villa Tejada. It’s made up of eight members and is directed by a board of directors, where Norma is the President. The other members of the association run various other businesses. We have meat sales, buying tools to install gas, vegetable sales, various product sales, raising and selling vegetables, coca and vegetable sales.

Norma says that she has been with Pro Mujer for eight months, having joined after being invited by her daughter. She currently has an American clothing business. She developed this business years ago through her own initiative.

She will use the money from this loan to increase her working capital (buy American clothing) and she will buy from the city of Oruro and then resell from her point of sale. This type of work will allow her to generate income to support her family. She is divorced and has three children.

When asked what she likes about Pro Mujer, she says that she likes that the provide loans and allow her to meet other people.
