A loan of $2,250 helped a member to buy cement.

15 De Junio Group's story

The communal bank “15 DE JUNIO” [June 15th] will begin its first loan cycle with Pro Mujer as part of Centro Focal de Alto Lima. It has nine members and is directed by a board whose president is Antonia. The association members' businesses vary and among them are: making shoes and hats, selling construction materials, sewing fleece jackets, making suits, weaving wool blankets, running a grocery store, and weaving leggings.

Antonia says that this is her first membership with a Pro Mujer communal bank; she joined at the invitation of a sponsor who came to her house. She now sells construction materials, a business she began with her husband's support. He said that opening the business would help them generate income and take care for the children.

This loan will be used to buy cement from the factory to resell in her shop. This work allows her to generate income to help her family as best she can as she is married and has three children. When asked what she likes about Pro Mujer, she responded that she likes the clinic and life insurance.
