A loan of $4,100 helped a member to buy tires.


Tilateñas Group's story

The “TILATEÑAS” communal association will begin its second cycle with Pro Mujer, as a part of the Centro Focal de Villa Adela. It is formed by nine members and has a board of directors, of which Julia is the President. The members of the communal association have various businesses, including: the sale of brooms, a small grocery store, the sale of meat, working as the assistant to a stonemason, macrame weaving, and the sale of coca.

The loan they will take out will benefit small business owners, of which Julia is a member. She indicates that it is the second cycle they are part of at Pro Mujer, joining in by invitation from a promoter at the institution who came to visit her at home. She currently has a public transportation business; she says that she started this business two years ago, having been taught by her father.

The loan that she will take out now is for the increase in capital (buying tires) that she will acquire from the distributor stores in the city of El Alto and will subsequently put on her car. This means of work allows her to generate resources to maintain her home as well as possible, as she is married and has two children.

When you consult her on what she likes about Pro Mujer, she responds that she likes the meetings and saving money.

In this group: Julia, Liusa, Pacesa Maxima, Angelica Julia, Ignacia , Emilia , Sonia , Gladys, Juana
