A loan of $2,875 helped a member buy some cows.

Cachi Lipe Group's story

The Cachi Lipe Community Bank will begin its third loan cycle with Pro Mujer, part of the Achacachi group. Cachi Lipe has eight members and has a board of directors headed by President Sra. Catalina.

The members have a variety of businesses including food selling, cheese selling, driver, cattle selling, and sheep selling. Catalina is one of the small business people who will benefit from the loan. She has been working with Pro Mujer for three years after joining at the invitation of an advisor who came to her house. Currently Catalina has a business selling cheese, which she began at the suggestion of her mother.

The loan she is seeking will be used to grow her business. She plans to buy some cows in the nearby community markets and then after making the cheese she will sell it in her local market. This will enable her to generate an income to help her family as much as possible. She is married and has five children.

Catalina most enjoys the health training sessions provided by Pro Mujer.

In this group: Catalina , Reina , Juana , Antonia , Bertha, David , Paula , Patricio Victor
