A loan of $2,625 helped a member to buy feed for her cattle (fodder).

Progreso Group's story

The communal bank "Progreso" will start its 3rd loan cycle in the Villa Tejada central office of Pro Mujer. This group has 9 members, and is led by a board of directors where Lucia is the president. The members of this communal bank have a variety of businesses, including: raising animals, cultivating vegetables, and livestock production and sales.

This loan will benefit the small business people in this group where Lucia is a member. She states that she joined Pro Mujer 3 years ago at the invitation of a loan officer who was at her house. Now she has a business raising animals; she acquired the business from her parents, who had it from the time she was a child. Now she runs the business to support herself.

The loan that she will take now will be used to buy food for her cattle (fodder), which she will buy in the markets in the city of El Alto and later feed to her cattle. This form of work allows her to generate resources to support her family as much as she can, as she is married and has 3 children.

When asked what she likes about Pro Mujer, she answered that she likes the health services.

In this group: Lucia , Lucrecia, Mariela, Iabel , Maria Paz , Reynalda , Otilia Lucia , Sofia , Lidia
