Primavera De 27 De Mayo Group's story

The group “PRIMAVERA 27 DE MAYO” (Spring May 27th) will begin its first loan cycle with Pro Mujer, as part of the Centro Focal de Cascada. It is made up of six members and it is governed by a board, of which Lidia is the President. The businesses that the members of the association manage are varied and include: food sales, crafting artisanal beds and aguayos (traditional multi-purpose rectangular cloths), weaving sweaters and blankets, and a neighborhood store.

The loan they are requesting will benefit the small business group of which Lidia is a member. She indicates that this is her first time working with ProMujer, and that she joined at the invitation of a promoter of the organization that came to her home to visit her. Currently, she has a neighborhood store, and she has been working at this business for years, starting out selling only gelatin, and then increasing her capital and opening her store.

The loan that she is currently taking out is to increase her capital (purchasing sugar, noodles, oil, etc.) which she will acquire in the markets of the city of El Alto and then sell in her store. This type of work allows her to generate resources to support her family.

When consulted about what she likes about Pro Mujer, she responds that she enjoys the trainings about health and the loans.

In this group: Lidia Roxana, Paula , Yolanda , Selma , Natalia , Catalina
