A loan of $2,875 helped a member to buy wool.

Tunari Fab Group's story

The “Tunari Fab” communal bank will start its 8th cycle in Pro Mujer as part of the Los Andes Focal Center; it has 8 members led by a governing board presided by Tania. The communal bank members carry out a variety of businesses among which are sweater weaving, blanket weaving, loom work, traditional clothing sales and Avon product sales.

The loan they will take out will benefit small micro businesswomen. Tania is one of them. She indicates that she’s been in Pro Mujer for three cycles having joined thanks to an invitation from her weaving teacher who recommended her to the institution. She currently has a business weaving sweaters. She relates that she learned this skill at a technical institution and later on started her own business.

The loan she’ll take out now is to increase working capital. She will buy wool in various supply centers and once she makes her items will sell them to order. This way of working allows her to earn income needed to support her family the best way possible since she has a spouse and a son. When asked what she likes about Pro Mujer, she answers that she likes the health training and the credit.
