Princesitas Del Amor Group's story

The Communal Bank “Princesitas del Amor” (Little Princesses of Love) is starting its sixth loan cycle with Pro Mujer as part of the Los Andes Community Center. This group consists of eight members and is led by a Board of Directors headed by Sra. Claudia as its president. The members of this Communal Bank engage in different businesses such as selling dairy products, selling coffee, selling vegetables, selling soft drinks, selling food, selling gifts, and weaving blankets.

This loan will benefit small micro-entrepreneurs in various trades, such as Sra. Claudia. She says that she joined Pro Mujer three years ago after receiving an invitation from a promoter who came to her house. At the moment, she has a soft drink business that she started recently with the savings she accumulated through Pro Mujer.

The loan Claudia is receiving now will be used to increase her capital for buying soft drinks. She acquires her products from bottlers and then sells them from her retail space. Working in this manner enables her to generate income to support her household. Claudia is married and has two children.

When asked what she likes about Pro Mujer, Claudia said that she enjoys the training seminars about credit and health issues.

In this group: Claudia, Angelica, Virginia, Mayra Yenifer, Yanet , Melania, Jenny Antonieta, Eulogia
