A loan of $2,475 helped a member to buy toner.


Torre De Fuego Group's story

The Communal Bank "Torre Fuerte" will begin its first loan cycle with Pro Mujer as a part of the Santiago II regional office. It is made up of eight members and is lead by a board of directors in which Patricia is the President. The businesses that the members of this communal bank carry out are several. Among them we have the sale of shakes and juices, internet, bathroom attendants, food sales, plastics sales, hardware sales, wholesale meat sales and liquor sales.

The loan that is to be taken out will benefit the small business owners in which Patricia is a member. She indicates that this is the first time that she has worked with Pro Mujer, entering due to her need for economic support. Currently she has an internet service business which she learned through her own initiative several years ago.

The loan that she is now taking out is to increase her capital (buying toner) that she will buy from wholesale dealers and then distribute in her business locale. This type of work allows her to generate the resources to support her family. She lives with her partner and they have two children.

When she is asked what she likes most about Pro Mujer, she responds that she likes the loan and health training because they help her to understand and know more.

In this group: Patricia, Rosmeri, Lucia, Sonia, Blanca Elena, Cristina, Gladys, Deysi Angelica
