A loan of $2,275 helped a member to purchase flour.

Incondicionales Group's story

The "Incondicionales" communal bank will begin the first loan cycle with Pro Mujer as part of one of the institution's regional offices in Santiago. It is comprised of nine members and it's headed by a board of directors presided by Janneth. The members of the communal bank conduct various businesses such as selling empanadas, making and selling aprons, selling food, selling clocks, weaving sweaters, selling coca, buying and selling furniture and utensils.
The loan they received will benefit the small business owners, one of which is Janneth. She reports that it's her first time as a member of Pro Mujer. She joined by invitation from a friend who's a member of the institution and went to visit her at home. She currently owns a business selling empanadas, a trade she learned from her parents years ago and then later on she started her own business.
The loan she will receive now will be used to increase her working capital by purchasing flour. She will buy it from the distributing cars by wholesale. After preparing her products, she'll make traveling sales in the markets of the town of El Alto. This line of work allows her to obtain earnings in order to support her family as much as she can, since she's married and has a son.
When she's asked about what she likes about Pro Mujer, she answers that she enjoys the health and credit trainings, because they help her in her daily life.
