A loan of $1,775 helped a member to buy tables and dinnerware.

Agua Dulce Group's story

Agua Dulce Communal Bank will start its first loan cycle with Pro Mujer as part of the Santiago II Regional Office. It's made up of seven members and governed by a board of directors of which Elsa is the president. The businesses carried out by the bank members are varied and include clothing sales, craft sales, auto body repair, bleach production, video production and sales, making tracksuits, and food sales.

The loan they're going to get will benefit micro-enterprises of which Elsa's a member. She indicates that it's the first cycle that she's a member of Pro Mujer, having joined on the invitation of a consultant of the institution who visited her at her house. Currently she has a business selling food that she set up years ago with her daughter's help.

The loan she's going to get is to increase capital to purchase tables and dinnerware, which she'll buy from the stores that sell wholesale, to use in her business space. This job allows her to generate resources to support her family because she's married and has two children.

When asked what she likes about Pro Mujer, she says she likes the trainings, the health field, and the loan.
