Flor Kantuta Group's story

The "Flor Kantuta" communal bank is about to start its third cycle in Pro Mujer as part of the Panamericana regional office. The group is made up of eight members and governed by a board of directors. Their treasurer is Señora Natividad. The members' businesses are varied and include: sewing vests, a general store, making traditional baby clothes, selling coca leaves, a variety store, making backpacks, macrame and woven blankets, and crafts.
This loan will benefit these micro businesspeople. Natividad is one of these people. She says that she joined Pro Mujer one year ago at the invitation of another member of the institution. She currently has a business running a general store. She has had this store for several years, and started it at the recommendation of her godmother who helped her to fit out the business.
This loan is for increasing capital (buying canned goods, sugar, and oil). She will acquire these goods from the wholesale sellers and later sell them in her store. This work allows her to make an income to support her family where possible. She is married and has five children.
When asked what she likes about Pro Mujer, she responded that she likes the health clinic.

In this group: Bertha, Lucha, Julia , Francisca, Virginia , Maria, Natividad, Betty Sofia
