A loan of $1,775 helped a member to buy meat.

Moradita Group's story

The Communal Bank ”Moradita" will begin its first loan cycle with Pro Mujer as part of the Los Andes Regional Office. It is made up of six members and led by a Board of Directors in which Bertha is the President. The businesses in which the members of the communal bank carry out are varied. Among the businesses are the following: the weaving of sweaters, sale of food, sale of peppers, sale of fruits and a butcher shop.

The loan that they will take out will benefit small businesses in various sectors. Bertha indicates that this is her first time that she has worked with Pro Mujer and that she had entered by invitation of a friend who is a member of the institution. Currently she runs a business selling meat which is owned by her mother. However, they both work within the business with separate capital.

The loan that she is now taking out is to increase her capital by buying meat that she will acquire from the slaughterhouses in the city of El Alto. She will then sell the meat in her business space. This type of work allows her to generate resources to support her home as much as possible. She is married and has three children.

When asked what she likes about Pro Mujer she responded that she likes the credit and health education.
