A loan of $5,275 helped a member to buy cattle.

Corazon Valiente Group's story

The communal bank "Corazon Valiente" (Brave Heart) will begin its first cycle with Pro Mujer as part of the Regional Office of Senkata. The group has 12 members and is directed by a board of directors with Elizabeth as the president. The businesses of the members of the communal bank are varied and include: the sale of breads, food, candies, textiles, meats, potatoes, and potato starch.

The loan that they are taking out will benefit the business women with whom Elizabeth is a member. This is the first time she has been part of Pro Mujer, and she invited the other women to join her. Elizabeth sells cheese and milk, a business she learned from her mother, and continues because it generates good compensation. She will use the loan to increase her capital (buying cattle) that she will purchase from nearby communities, and after raising the cattle, she will sell the products in the markets of the city of El Alto"

Her business has allowed her to generate resources to maintain her home as she is single and has a son. When asked what she likes about Pro Mujer, Elizabeth responds that she likes the training they give about health.

In this group: Elizabet , Jaime , Juana, Petrona , Hilda , Lourdes Mery, Lucia, Felipa, Celestina, Eva Elena, Arminda , Judit
