A loan of $3,775 helped a member to buy seeds.

Rocio Del Amanecer Group's story

The “ROCIO DEL AMANECER” community bank are starting their third loan cycle as part of the Villa Exaltación regional office. The group has eight members and Sonia is the group's president. The business activities that the women are engaged in are varied and include: farming, selling food, mineral sales and selling vegetables.

Sonia tells us that this is the first time she has belonged to a Pro Mujer community bank. She was invited by her mother. Sonia's business is farming. She has been in this business for some years, having learned it from her family.

The loan that Sonia is taking out will be used to increase her capital. She will buy seeds from wholesale producers, sow them, harvest them, and then sell her crops in the street markets in the city of El Alto. This work helps her to support her family. Sonia is single.

When we asked her what she likes about Pro Mujer, Sonia replied that she likes the training sessions on the topics of health and finances.

In this group: Maria Luisa, Esperanza, Filomena , Evelyn Helen, Marcela Eugenia, Sonia Antonia, Daniela, Liseth
