Abejitas De Tilata Group's story

The group “Abejitas de Tilata” will begin its second cycle in Pro Mujer as part of the Villa Dela Focal Center. It has eight members and is managed by a board of directors of which Nora is President. The members are involved in various business adventures, including: fabric sales, food sales, the sale of provisions, a sewing workshop, cosmetic sales, gelatine sales, a general store, and the sale of lubricants.

The loan requested will benefit micro-entrepreneurs of which Nora is a member. Nora says she joined Pro Mujer ten years ago after a friend who is a member of the institution invited her. Currently, Nora runs a general store, which she opened after seeing that there wasn't one in her neighborhood, and which she and her neighbors needed.

She will invest the loan in increasing her capital by buying noodles, sugar, rice, etc. that she will buy at wholesale at the markets in El Alto city and later sell in her store. This work allows her to generate income to support her family as best she can, as she is married and has three children.

When asked what she likes about Pro Mujer, Nora said she likes the savings.

In this group: Nora Elza, Rosa , Nelly Eugenia, Elsa , Magali , Nancy, Vigilia Virginia, Lorenza
