Tilata A Group's story

The “Tilata A” communal bank will start its first cycle in Pro Mujer as part of the Villa Adela Focal Center. It has six members led by a governing board presided by Miriam. The members carry out a variety of businesses among which is the sale of turnovers, cosmetology, coca sales, food sales, blended fruit drink sales and woolens sales.

The loan they’ll take out will benefit small micro businesswomen. One of them is Miriam who indicates that this is the first time she’s been part of Pro Mujer having joined thanks to an invitation from a girlfriend who is a member of the institution. She currently has a cosmetology business. She relates that she learned the business years ago because she took courses in training institute and later on decided to set up a specialized space where she takes care of people daily.

The loan she’ll take out now is to increase capital. She’ll buy moisturizing creams from wholesale stores and will either use them at her service space or during customer home visits. This way of working allows her to generate income to support her home however possible since she’s married and has two children. When asked what she likes about Pro Mujer, she responds that she likes the health services and the credit.
