A loan of $2,200 helped a member to buy fabric.

Triunfadoras De 25 De Julio Group's story

The “TRIUNFADORAS 25 DE JULIO” community association will begin its second cycle with Pro Mujer as part of the Collapani center. It’s made up of eight members and directed by a board of directors where Julia serves as the president. The members have various types of businesses such as: fried foods, wall hanging knitting, macramé, carpentry, and sale of tools.

This loan will benefit the small businesses and this is Julia’s first time with Pro Mujer, having joined upon a friend’s invitation who is also a member. She has two sewing businesses and learned this in her previous job in Argentina. She started her small business when she returned to Bolivia.

She will use the money from this loan to buy fabric from distributers in El Alto. She will then make and sell items from her point of sale. This type of work allows her to help support her household. She’s married and has two children.

When asked what she likes about Pro Mujer, she says that she likes the health and credit training.

In this group: Julia , Florencia , Sara , Tomasa, Luisa , Norma Gimena, Francisca, Martina
