A loan of $5,425 helped a member to buy noodles, rice, oil, etc.

Con Suerte Group's story

The communal association "Con Suerte" ("With Luck") will begin its second loan cycle with Pro Mujer as part of the Centro Focal de Patacamata. It is made up of eleven members and led by a board of directors, of which Rosmery is the president. Members of the association maintain a variety of different businesses. Among them we have: buying and selling potatoes and potato flour, selling beer and sodas, selling food, a neighborhood store, transportation, upholstery, and buying and selling sheep.

The loan that they will take out will benefit small microbusinesses, including Rosmery's. She indicates that she has been a member of Pro Mujer for the past three years, joining by invitation from a promoter of the institution who came to visit her home. She currently has a food sales business. The loan she received in her first loan cycle helped her start her business by her own initiative.

The loan that she will take out now is to continue expanding her business. She will use it to buy noodles, rice, oil, etc., which she will purchase from wholesale distributors. After preparing the food, she will sell it at markets in her community. This form of work allows her to generate resources to support her family—as much as she can—since she is single and has one son.

When asked what she likes about Pro Mujer, Rosmery responded that she likes the health training.
