Chicas Inolvidables Group's story

The A.C. "Chicas Inolvidables" (Unforgettable Girls) will begin its sixth cycle in Pro Mujer (Pro-Woman) as part of a central focus in Patacamaya. It is composed of nine workers and is directed by a board of directors where Juana is president. The businesses that move the the communal association workers forward are diverse, including the sale of quinoa, the sale of clothing, potato production, sale of fruits and vegetables, and sale of cattle.

The loan they are taking out will benefit small micro-businesses where Juana is a worker. She notes that it is her fourth cycle as a part of Pro Mujer. She was invited by the invitation of a promoter who works at the institution and came to visit her in her house. She now has a business for producing and selling quinoa. She has practiced this business for years, undertaking the same business with a community association that commercializes said product.

The loan that she will take out is to raise capital for the sale of seeds, which she will acquire from the fairs in the town of El Alto and later will harvest to sell outside. This form of work allows her to generate resources to support her home in all ways possible because she is married and has three children.

When asked what she likes about Pro Mujer, she responds that she likes the health area and loans.
