A loan of $5,050 helped a member to buy livestock.


Huayna Potosi Group's story

The “HUAYNA POTOSI” communal bank will begin its third cycle with Pro Mujer, as part of the Panamericana center. The group is made up of ten members and directed by a board of directors. Maxima serves as the president. The members have different businesses, including promotional product sales, bread sales, food sales, snack sales, awayo knitting, meat, potatoes, and chuño.

This loan will help their small businesses, including Maxima’s. She has been with Pro Mujer for two cycles and joined on the invitation of a promoter who visited her in her home. She sells cattle and started this business a few years ago on her parent’s recommendation.

She will use the money from this loan to buy livestock in the provincial fairs and sell it on order. This work will allow her to generate income to support her household. She is in a common law marriage and has two children.

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