19 De Junio Group's story

The “10 de Junio” (June 19th) communal bank will start its third cycle in Pro Mujer as part of the Panamericana Focal Center. It has 8 members led by a governing board where Gladis is secretary. The members of the communal bank carry out a variety of activities, among which are: food sales, skirt sales, neighborhood store, sheep buying and selling, clothes sales and clothes sewing.

The loan they’ll take out will benefit small micro businesswomen like Gladis. She indicates that she’s been a member of Pro Mujer for a year having been invited to join by one of the institution’s promoters who visited her at home. She currently has a business making and selling food that she started thanks to her aunt but today she operates by herself.

The loan she’ll take out now is to increase capital. She will buy rice, noodles, oil, etc. at wholesale in street markets in the city of El Alto and then after making it will sell it in street markets in El Alto. This way of working allows her to generate income to support her family composed of her and her mother. When asked what she likes about Pro Mujer, she answers that she likes the health training and the credit.
