A loan of $1,400 helped a member to buy shoes and other items to sell.


Rompe Corazones Group's story

The “Heart Breakers” Communal Bank has begun its 1st loan cycle with our “Santiago II” Central Office. The bank is composed of 6 members with Nilsa as president. The group is involved in distinct activities, including making shoes, selling cosmetics, roasting chicken, selling beer, operating a juice vending store, and selling perfumes.

Nilsa tells us that this is the 1st time she has joined a communal bank within Pro-Mujer. She was invited to join by one of her companions. At present, she sells shoes at a business she has operated for several years, using skills learned from her friends.

The loan she is requesting will provide capital for buying shoes at the fairs in La Paz, then she will sell them in her market stall. This type of work helps her advance her family, since she lives with her common law husband and has 3 children.

When asked what she likes about Pro Mujer, she replied “the life insurance and the medical clinic.”

In this group: Nilsa, Ximena, Flora , Martha Fidelia, Tania Vivian, Jeanneth Blanca
