A loan of $1,400 helped a member to buy a sales cart.

29 De Junio 2013 Group's story

The A.C. "29 DE JUNIO 2013" will begin its first cycle with Pro Mujer, as part of the Centro Focal de Senkata, is comprised of eight members and is lead by a board in which Sonia is the president. The businesses that the members of this communal association have are varied, from the sale of fried potatoes and Internet to vegetables and woven sweaters.

If they receive the loan, it will benefit small micro-businesses, such as business-owner Sonia. She became a member of Pro Mujer a year and a half ago, entering at the invitation of the other members of the group. Today she has a business in which she sells fried potatoes, which she says her older sisters taught her to do 68 years ago.

The loan for which she is applying would be to increase capital (to buy a sales cart) that she would acquire from one of the markets in the city of El Alto, and she would use it to sell her product. This line of work permits her to generate the resources necessary to maintain her family, since she is married and has two children.

When asked what she likes about Pro Mujer, she responded that she likes the health area and the savings.

In this group: Sonia, Juli Susana, Tania , Juana, Lidia, Eugenia
