Generación 2006 Group's story

The “GENERACIÓN 2006” community bank are about to start their ninth loan cycle with Pro Mujer, as part of the Villa Exaltación regional office. The group has eight members and is run by a board of directors which has Jhosselin Daniela as its secretary. The businesses that the members are engaged in are varied and include: selling clothes, selling slippers, running a grocery store, selling 'añelina' (a dye), selling Yambal products, selling groceries, selling miscellaneous merchandise and wood carving.

Jhosselin Daniela says that she has been a member of Pro Mujer for seven months, having joined through an invitation from her sister who has been a member for some time. She currently has a business selling a range of different goods (booties, gloves, hats, scarves and umbrellas). She says that she took over this business from her mother some years ago.

The loan that Jhosselin Daniela is currently requesting will be used to increase her capital (she will buy hats, gloves, slippers, etc.) She will buy these products in the well-known street fairs in the city of La Paz and then sell them from her sales location. This work enables her to make income with which to support her family.

When asked what she likes about Pro Mujer, Jhosselin Daniela replied that she likes the health training and the loans.
