A loan of $2,875 helped a member to buy fabric.

Rositas De Panamericana Group's story

The “ROSITAS DE PANAMERICANA” communal bank will begin its second cycle Pro Mujer as a part of the Panamericana Center. It is made up of nine members and is led by a board of directors of which Reyna is the Secretary. The businesses that the members of the association run are varied. Among them are: selling food, selling fruit, selling machine knitted sweaters, making shoes, selling vicuña blankets and a butcher shop.

The loan they will take out will benefit the micro-business women, including Reyna. She indicates that this is the first time she has been a member of Pro Mujer, joining at the invitation of her mother, who is a member of the institution. Right now, she has a business making and selling sports clothing, which she learned from her mother some years ago. Over time, she was able to establish her own independent business.

The loan she will take out now is to increase her capital by buying fabric that she will acquire at the border of Bolivia and Peru wholesale. Later she will make the clothes and sell them in her sales space. This work allows her to generate financial resources for her studies.

When asked what she likes about Pro Mujer, she says she likes the meetings.
