Rosarios De Achocalla Group's story

The communal bank "Rosarios de Achocalla" starts its first cycle in the regional office of Villa Exaltación. The group is comprised of six members with Micarelly as president. The team carries out different activities, such as: neighborhood store, snack sales, vegetable sales, sewing jackets, and making boat paddles.

Micarelly tells us that it is the first time she joins a communal bank within Pro Mujer. She was invited by a promoter. Her business is a neighborhood store, which she has been doing for many years.

The loan will be used to increase her capital (buying groceries), which she will buy from the market in the city of El Alto. Then, she will sell it from her local store. Her business helps her family to get ahead since she has a partner and has three children. When asked what she likes about Pro Mujer, she responds that she likes their training in health and credit.

In this group: Micarelly, Maruja, Teresa Rosalia, Ana Carminia, Elba, Felisa Maribel
