Amanecer De Huayhuasi Group's story

“Amanecer de Huayhuasi” (Huayhuasi’s Dawn) is a Communal Bank that will start its first cycle with Pro Mujer as part of the Patacamaya Community Center. It is composed of ten members, guided by a directive board presided over by Leonora. The members of the Communal Bank engage in different activities such as producing gloves and hats, running a neighborhood store, making invitation cards, growing potatoes, mechanics and weaving fabrics.

Leonora is one of the micro entrepreneurs forming this group, and she will benefit from the requested loan. Leonora says she has been a member of Pro Mujer for one year, and that she has been invited to enter by one of the promoters of this institution who came to visit her at her house. She currently engages in producing and selling graphic arts. She says she has learned the technique in an institution and then she has decided to start her own activity.

The loan she in now requesting will be used to increase her working capital (she will buy canvases) in the town of La Paz. She will then sell her products to the fairs of her community. This type of activity helps her earning an income to economically provide for herself.

When asked about what she likes of Pro Mujer, she answers that she likes the insurance and the savings.

In this group: Leonora , Delfina , Ana Maria, Erwin, Narciza, Faustino, Teodora, Guillermina, Cristina Filomena, Pedro
