A loan of $2,575 helped a member to buy cloth.


Las Alpaquitas Group's story

Alpaquitas Group is starting its second cycle with field partner Pro Mujer, in the framework of the focus centre of Panamericana. It comprises eight members and has an executive board, with Magari as president. The members of the group are engaged in various activities, among them lace weaving, dress sales, dressmaking, grocery shop, plaid weaving, vegetable sales. This loan will thus benefit a group of very small entrepreneurs. Magari tells us that she has been working with Pro Mujer for one year. She got to know this field partner thanks to a spokesperson who came to visit her at her house. Magari makes and sells skirts. She learned at a school and then decided to start her own small business. She wants to take out a loan in order to increase her working capital and buy cloth at the markets of the town of El Alto, at a very good price. Afterwards, she will be able to sell her wares near the border between Bolivia and Peru. The income Magari derives from her business enables her to help with household expenses, since she is married and has two children. When asked what she likes about working with Pro Mujer, she talks about the training received on topics such as health and credit options.

In this group: Margari, Florencia , Karina Mirtha, Eugenia, Trinidad, Elsa , Maria Amalia, Rosmery
