A loan of $1,125 helped a member to buy yarn.

2012 Abejitas Trabajadoras Group's story

The communal bank "2012 ABEJITAS TRABAJADORAS" will begin its first cycle in Pro Mujer as part of the Panamericana Social Center. It is comprised of six members and led by a board of directors whose president is Delfina. The businesses run by the members are varied and include: bricklayer assistant, sales of sweets in a store, sales of coca leaves, glove knitting.

The loan they are taking out will benefit the small business owners group to which Delfina belongs. This is her first experience as a member of Pro Mujer which she was invited to join by a promoter of the institution who visited her home. Currently, she has an alpaca wool glove knitting business which she set up through references of friends she saw working in this activity, and later got involved herself.

The loan she is requesting is to increase her working capital to buy yarn at the city fairs in the city of El Alto, to use later iat her sales point. This work allows her to earn an income to support her family, since she is single and has two children.

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

In this group: Delfina , Josefa, Luisa, Ana Maria, Nora Esperanza, Bertha
