A loan of $1,350 helped a member to buy yarn.

Bellas Rosas Jp Group's story

The “Bellas Rosas” (Beautiful Roses) communal bank will start its first cycle in Pro Mujer as part of the Juan Pablo II Focal Center. It has six members led by a governing board presided by Feliza. The communal bank members carry out a variety of business among which are: knitted sweater sales, blanket and sweater knitting, cattle sales, traditional skirt and blouse sales, sportswear sewing and tire repair shop.

The loan they’ll take out will benefit small micro businesswomen one of which is Feliza. She indicates that she joined Pro Mujer six months ago having been invited by one of the institution’s promoters who went to visit her. She currently has a business knitting blankets. She started it years ago on her own initiative since she’s had these skills since she was a girl.

The loan she’ll take out now is to increase capital. She’ll buy yarn in wholesale stores and then sell what she makes in her sales stand. This way of working allows her to generate income to support her home in the best way possible since she’s married and has a son. When asked what she likes about Pro Mujer, she answers that she likes the health services.
