A loan of $4,875 helped a member to buy cosmetics.


Altiplano Group's story

The Communal Bank "Antiplano" will start its 10th cycle in Pro Mujer as part of the Regional Hub of Villa Exaltación. It's composed of 11 members and is headed by a board where Caciana is the Treasurer. The businesses that members of the communal association carry out are varied. Among them there are: production of cookies, seam centers, sale of cheese, sale of skirts and seams, corner store, sale of quinoa juice, sale of fruits, butcher's shop, and macramé blankets. The loan they will obtain will benefit small microenterprises where Caciana is a member. She says that she is part of Pro Mujer since three years ago, when she entered at the invitation of her friend who is a member of the institution. Today, she has a business selling cosmetics. She says she began this activity years ago when she got invited to sell cosmetic products which generated profits and then she established the business. The loan she is requesting now is to increase the capital (purchase of cosmetics) that she will buy from distribution companies and later she will sell it to people requesting it. This way to work allows her to generate resources to support her family in whatever she can, because she lives with her partner and has two children. When asked what she likes about Pro Mujer, she replies she likes the trainings in credit and health.
