A loan of $3,050 helped a member to buy piglets.

Dalias De Achocalla Group's story

The Dalias de Achocalla communal bank is starting its first cycle in the Villa Exaltación regional office. The communal bank is comprised of nine members, and Victoria is the president. The businesses that the ladies are engaged in are varied and include: selling food, selling clothes, raising animals, selling “salchipapas” (fried potatoes and fried sausages), and weaving blankets.

Victoria says that this is the first time she has been in a Pro Mujer communal bank. She was invited by a invitation from a promoter. She currently has a business raising pigs. She has been doing this work for several years, and she learned this business from her grandmother.

The loan that she will now take out is to increase her capital (to buy piglets). She will buy the piglets from her neighbors, and after raising them she will sell them at the fairs in the city of El Alto. This way of working supports her family getting ahead. She is married.

When we asked her what she likes about Pro Mujer, she told us that she likes the training about health and credit.
