A loan of $3,650 helped a member to buy radios.

Buen Corazon Group's story

The “BUEN CORAZON” communal bank will begin its seventh cycle in Pro Mujer as a part of the Villa Exaltación center. It is made up of nine members and is led by a board of directors of which Gabriela is the Secretary. The businesses that the communal bank members have are varied. Among them, we have: a neighborhood store, sewing, event catering, selling toys, selling hardware, selling clothes and cosmetics.

Gabriela indicates that a year and ahalf ago she joined Pro Mujer. She jpined at the invitation of her father, who has been a member for a while. Right now, she has a business selling electronic materials. She says that she got to know this business when she works with her godmother. Later, she opened her own business.

The loan that she is talking out now is to grow her capital (buying radios). She will buy these from distributors and later sell them at her store. This work allows her to generate resources to support her family as much as possible. She is in a common law marriage with two children.

When asked what she likes about Pro Mujer, she responds that she likes the areas of health and lending.
