Halcones De Cascada Group's story

The A.C. group "Halcones de Cascada" is starting it's third cycle in Pro Mujer, as part of the Centro Focal Cascada. It is comprised of nine members and is directed by a board where Armalia is the President. The business the members of this community association carry out are diverse: selling clothing, alpaca yarn, meat, macramé blankets and food.

The loan they will take out will benefit small micro-entrepreneurs with distinct areas. Amalia is an integral part and says that she entered Pro Mujer four years ago, at the invitation of a friend who is a member of the institution. Currently, she has a business selling shirts, which she learned years ago out of need for economic support.

The loan she will take out now, it is diversify her capital (purchase shirts) that she will acquire from wholesale stores and later sell in her trading post. This type of work will allow her to generate resources to support her family financially since she is married and has five children.

When you ask her what she likes about Pro Mujer, she responds that she likes the health training and loans.
