6 De Junio 2 Group's story

The community association "6 de Junio 2" (6 of June 2)will begin their second loan cycle with Pro Mujer as a part of the regional office of Cascada. They are a group of six individuals, and they are guided by a board on which Paulina is the president. The businesses of the community association's members are varied and include among them: sewing skirts, oil sales, sales of knitting needles, an auto-body repair shop, weaving and sales of blankets, and sales of annuities.

The loan she will receive goes to benefit the small businesses of the group Paulina belongs to, and she says that it has been two years since she became a member of Pro Mujer, joining by the invitation of a promoter who works for the institution. She currently has a small business weaving and selling blankets, and she says she learned this work from her aunt who made blankets and then learned to run her own business.

The loan she will receive will improve her business through buying a weaving machine, which she will buy from a store and the have installed in her workshop. This line of work generates income to support her family in the best possible way, as she is single and has three children.

When asked what she likes about Pro Mujer, she replies that she likes the health workshops and the loans.

In this group: Paulina , Lidia, Amalia, Ascencia, Blanca Yohuana, Basilia
