A loan of $1,475 helped a member to buy livestock.

Taramaya Group's story

The communal bank “TARAMAYA” will begin its third loan cycle with Pro Mujer, as part of Centro Focal de Achacachi. The group has eight members, and Martha is president of its board. The members work at various jobs including selling milk, cheese, and vegetables and bricklaying. The loan will benefit a variety of micro businesses such as Martha's. She says she joined Pro Mujer two years ago at the invitation of a friend who works for the institution.

Martha sells livestock, a trade she learned from her parents and has been working at for years. She is applying for a working capital loan to buy livestock at wholesale in nearby communities to raise and later sell and fill orders in the city of El Alto. Her work allows her to earn income to support her household as best she can. She is married and has five children. She says that what she most likes about Pro Mujer is that she now saves money.

In this group: Martha, Carmen Rosa , Catalina, Jesus , Eugenia Margarita, Juan , Agustina, Marmacel
