A loan of $4,275 helped a member to buy notebooks, pencils, rulers, pencil cases, etc.

Rosas De Bautista Group's story

The group ROSES BAUTISTA (Roses of Bautista) will begin their twenty-sixth cycle with Pro Mujer as part of the Pan American Focal Center. It consists of nine members and is directed by a board where Valeria is the Treasurer. The members of the community association conduct diverse businesses such as: selling miniatures, braided rugs, selling utensils, selling donuts and pastries, washing cars, selling clothing, corner store, cobbler, selling shoes.

The loan will benefit small businesses of which Valeria is a member. She joined Pro Mujer a year ago at the invitation of a friend who is a member of the institution. Today she has a business selling school supplies; she tells us that she learned the business from her mother, who sells the same things.
The loan she is requesting will go toward increasing capital (to buy notebooks, pencils, rulers, pencil cases, etc..) which she will acquire at the fairs in La Paz and then sell at her stand. This type of work allows her to generate resources to maintain her home as she lives in a common-law marriage and has three children.

When asked what she likes about Pro Mujer, she says that she likes the credit and health training and meetings with friends.

In this group: Kelly Fatima, Elizabeth, Noemy Luisa , Lidia, Julia , Elsa Virginia , Valeria Chanel, Isabel , Teresa
