Yanaptasiñani Group's story

“Yanaptasiñani” is a Communal Bank that will start its third cycle with Pro Mujer as part of the Juan Pablo II Community Center. It is composed of eleven members, guided by a directive board presided over by Carla. The members of the Communal Bank engage in different activities such as running a neighborhood store, selling groceries, selling vegetables, selling beauty products, selling dishware, selling sausages, selling fruits, selling dressings and working as a driver.

Carla is one of the micro entrepreneurs forming this group, and she will benefit from the requested loan. Carla says she has been a member of Pro Mujer for two years, and that she has been invited to enter by some friends who are members of this institution. She currently runs a neighborhood store. She says she has learned this job by watching how her mother made a living from this activity, and she lately decided to start her own shop.

The loan she in now requesting will be used to increase her working capital by buying food products at wholesale prices to the sell them in her shop. This type of activity helps her earning an income to economically provide for herself, as she is single.

When asked about what she likes of Pro Mujer, she answers that she likes the health clinic and the savings offered by our institution.

In this group: Carla Patricia, Silvia Carolina, Silvia , Jacqueline Roxana, Jackeline, Jacinta, Marlene, Paola Coral , Margarita Jhovana, Flora Angelica, Gilberto
