A loan of $3,750 helped a member to buy clothing.

Nadir Group's story

The communal bank "Nadir" will begin its second cycle with Pro Mujer, part of the regional office in Collpani. It is made up of eight members and managed by a board of directors of which Soraya is the president.

The types of businesses from the communal bank are varied, among them there are: clothing sales, cosmetics sales, jewelry sales, food vendors, blanket sales, shoe sales, and chicken vendors.

The loan that they will receive will benefit the small businesses where Soraya is a member. She says she joined Pro Mujer two years ago at the invitation of a friend who is a member.

Currently, she has her own business selling clothing; she learned this business on her own over the past few years. The loan she is now requesting is to increase her capital (purchase of clothing) that she will acquire in the cities of La Paz and Oruro. Afterwards, she will sell them in the city of Potosí.

This kind of work enables her to earn enough resources to sustain her home. She lives with her husband, and has three children. When you ask what she likes about Pro Mujer, Soraya responds that she likes the health trainings offered.
