Lluvia De Oro Group's story

The communal bank "Lluvia de Oro" (Rain of Gold) will begin its second loan cycle with Pro Mujer as part of the Los Andes regional center. It is composed of 11 members, and it is directed by a board of directors where Señora Juana is the president. The businesses that the members of the bank run are varied. Among them are selling cell phone accessories, selling food, selling fruit, selling gasoline, bookstore, selling sweets, selling pills, selling natural medicines, selling sports pants, selling perfume, selling juice.

The loan that they will take out will benefit these little microentrepreneurs, of whom Juana is one. She mentions that she joined Pro Mujer two loan cycles ago, joining at the invitation of her friend, who is a member of the institution. Now she has a business selling food. She states that she began this business years ago on her own initiative, since this business has very good sales.

The loan that she will take out now is to increase her capital, buying rice, noodles, etc, which she will acquire from the distributors, and after preparing her food, she will sell it in her sales space. This form of work allows her to generate resources to help her family as much as possible, since she is married and has four children.

When she is asked what she likes about Pro Mujer, she responds that she likes the training in health and credit.
