Unión Estrellas De Senkata Group's story

The “UNIÓN ESTRELLAS DE SENKATA” group is in its first cycle in the Centro Focal de Senkata and is comprised of six members. Evelia is the president. The activities of the group members are varied. Between them they sell food, run a neighborhood shop, sell clothes, and sell potatoes.

Evelia tells us that this is her first time that she found a community bank like Pro Mujer and she was invited by her neighbors to join. She has a food-selling business and has worked for many years learning this work, which was also the trade of her mother.

This loan will help her to increase her merchandise (she will buy vegetables and cereals) that she will buy in the markets of the city of El Alto and then will sell in her own market stall. This work helps her support her family, as she is married and has three children.

When we asked why she liked Pro Mujer, she told us that she likes the health training.

In this group: Evelia, Claudina Alejandra, Arminda , Luisa , Emma, Lidia Francisca
