Los Pinos De Corazon Group's story

The “Los Pinos De Corazon” communal bank is beginning its third cycle with Pro Mujer as part of the Senkata center. It’s made up of eleven members and directed by a board of directors where Francisca serves as the president. The members have different businesses including: vegetable sales, bread sales, food sales, gelatin sales, awayos sales, and meat sales.

This loan will benefit small businesses where Francisca is a member and she says that she has been with Pro Mujer for a year, having joined after a promoter visited her home. She sells food and began several years ago on her own initiative.

This loan will help her buy vegetables and cereals that she will buy at fairs in El Alto and then sell them in her stall. This type of work allows her to generate income to maintain her household. She is separated and has three children.

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