A loan of $2,050 helped a member to buy clothes.

Nadir Group's story

The Nadir communal bank will start its first cycle in Pro Mujer as part of the Collpani Focal Center. It has seven members led by a governing board headed by Soraya, the president. The members of the communal bank carry out a variety of businesses. Among them are: clothing sales, skirt and blanket sales, pastry making, cosmetics sales, beauty products sales, used clothes sales, sale of silver jewelry and other silver items.

The loan they will take out will benefit small micro businesswomen like Soraya. She states that she joined Pro Mujer a year and a half ago having been invited by a girlfriend who is a member of the institution. She currently has a business selling clothes and she relates that she started the business several years ago on her own initiative and with her mother’s help.

The loan she’ll take out now is to increase capital. She will buy clothes from wholesalers and then resell it in the cities of Potosí and Oruro. This way of working makes it possible for her to generate income to support her family the best way possible since she’s married and has three children.

When asked what she likes about Pro Mujer, she answers that she likes the staff.

In this group: Soraya, Alejandra, Monica Mery, Giannina Rocio, Lidia Fortunata, Sonia Alicia, Patricia Barbara
