A loan of $2,650 helped a member to buy beer.

Kantuta De Collana Group's story

The A.C. “Kantutas de Collana” will begin the first cycle in Pro Mujer, as part of the Centro Focal de Patacamaya. It is made up of nine members and is headed by a board of directors where Juana is the president. The businesses that the members of the communal association carry out are varied. Among them are: the purchase and sale of spare parts, the purchase and sale of beer, the production of potatoes, the purchase and sale of livestock, the sale of potatoes, the sale of limestone, the production of carpets, the sale of potato flour and livestock, and a neighborhood store.

The loan that they will be taking out will benefit small micro-businesswomen where Juana is a member. She says that it is the first time that Pro Mujer has participated, joining through the invitation of a promoter of the institution who went to visit her at her home. Currently, she has a neighborhood store; she says that years ago she started this business because of the recommendation of her mother-in-law.

The loan that she will now take out is for the increase of capital (purchase of beer) that she will obtain from the distributing company and subsequently sell in her commercial space. This type of work allows her to generate resources to support her family in every way possible; she is married and has two children.

When she is asked what she likes about Pro Mujer, she replies that she likes the health training.
