A loan of $2,775 helped a member buy clothing.

Flor De Haba Group's story

The Flor de Haba Community Bank will begin its first loan cycle with Pro Mujer as part of the Senkata group of businesses. There are eight members headed by a board of directors with Sra. Luisa as president. The businesses run by the women cover a wide range: selling various items, shawl weaving, clothes selling, knitting sweaters, and selling sweaters.

The loan that the women are seeking will bring many benefits to these small businesspeople. Sra. Luisa is one such person. She joined Pro Mujer three years ago at the invitation of her friends who were already members. Now she owns a business selling clothes and other articles. She and her sister have run the business for several years.

Luisa plans to use the loan money to buy more clothing from wholesalers and then sell it on her stall. This work enables her to earn money to support as her family as best she can--she is married and has three children.

She enjoys belonging to Pro Mujer because of the loans and the savings program.

In this group: Luisa , Claudia, Elena, Liduvina, Asunta, Epifania , Celia, Virginia Lizet
