A loan of $4,250 helped a member to buy electronic devices.

Impactadoras Group's story

Kullaquitas Communal Bank will begin its seventh loan cycle with Pro Mujer as part of the Collpani regional office. It's made up of eight members and is governed by a board of directors of which Rosalia is the president. The variety of business carried out by the members of the communal bank include clothing sales, electronics sales, auto body repair, bleach production, making and selling videos, and knitted sweaters.

The loan they're getting will benefit small business entrepreneurs like Rosalia. She says she has been a member of Pro Mujer for two years, joining on the invitation of a friend who's a member of the institution. Currently she has a business selling electronics, which she learned from her brother-in-law.

The loan she's getting is to increase her capital to buy electronic devices, which she'll acquire in the city of Oruro or on the Peru-Bolivia border and later sell on order. This form of work allows her to generate resources to support her household as much as possible, because she lives in a common-law relationship and has a child.

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