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

Prados De San Roque Group's story

The loan group Prados de San Roque (Meadows of San Roque) began their first loan cycle with Pro Mujer as part of the Centro Focal de Los Andes. The group is composed of 9 members and is directed by a board of which Fania is the treasurer. The businesses that the group members run are varied and include: a mason's business, making blankets from vicuña wool and threads, a butcher's, making baby sweaters, knitting sweaters, selling vegetables, making alpaca leggings, and making traditional skirts.
The loan that they are requesting will benefit the group of micro-entrepreneurs of which Fania is a member. She says that this is the first time that she has been a member of Pro Mujer and she joined on the invitation of a friend who is a member of the institution. She currently has a business knitting sweaters for babies. She let us know that she started this business on her own initiative and, to date, she is doing well.
The loan that she is requesting now is to increase her capital to buy wool from the merchants in the city of El Alto which she will later knit and sell from her permanent stall. This type of work enables her to generate income to support her family as much as possible. She lives with her partner and 4 children.
When she was asked what she likes about Pro Mujer, she answered that she likes the credit and health training.
