A loan of $2,550 helped a member to buy wool.

Las Señoras De Mariscal Group's story

The community group called “LAS SEÑORAS DE MARISCAL” will begin its first cycle with Pro Mujer, as part of the Villa Adela office. The group is made up of nine members and run by a board of directors, where Juana serves as president. The community group’s members run various types of business, including sales of: bricks, food, alpaca wool, wool, electronics, and candy.

This loan will help small businesses, such as Juana’s. She says that it’s been a year since she joined Pro Mujer, after having been invited by a promoter who visited her home. She currently has a wool selling business and tells us that she learned this business on the recommendation of a friend who also works in this field.

She will use the money from this loan to increase her working capital and buy wool in quantity from the saleswomen and resell it from a fixed location. This type of work allows her to earn an income so that she can support her family. She is in a live-in relationship and has five children.

When asked what she likes about Pro Mujer, she says that she likes the health area.

In this group: Juana, Valeria, Aurora, Maritza, Sandy Marleny, Justina, Vicenta, Francisca, Vicenta
