Dragon De Oro Group's story

The communal bank “Dragon de Oro” (Golden Dragon) started the twenty-first cycle in the Focal de Villa Exaltación Center. It has nine members and Susan is the president. This group’s businesses are different, among them are: cosmetics sales, underwear sales, making caps, sweaters, selling food, selling underwear, and making hats.
Susan tells us that twenty-one cycles ago a friend invited her to join the communal bank in Pro Mujer. Her current business is selling sweaters that her mother had taught her to make over the years.
The loan that she will get is to increase her working capital (buying fabric). She will buy the material in the traditional markets of La Paz and later after the sweaters are produced, she will sell them in the night markets of El Alto. This type of work helps her get her family ahead since she is married and has two children.
When we ask her what she likes about Pro Mujer, she answers that she likes the health and finance training that she receives.

In this group: Susana, Juana, Sofia Roxana, Cristina Aida, Maria , Yaneth, Silvia Magali, Nancy Guadalupe, Virginia
