She entered at the invitation of some friends who are members of the institution. Right now, she has a business making sweaters. She says she learned the technique on her own and started her business on her own intitative.

The loan she will take out now is to increase her capital by buying wool. She will acquire it from people who sell it wholesale and after making her products she will sell them at her sales stall. This work lets her generate income to support her family financially, because she is married and has three children. When asked what she likes about Pro Mujer, she says that she likes the health and saving trainings that our institution offers.
