A loan of $1,775 helped a member to purchase fruit for resale.


Asmicra Group's story

The Community Association "ASMICRA," is in its first business cycle of affiliation with Pro Mujer (Pro Woman) and with the Villa Tejada Community Center. This group is made up of six members and has a board of directors on which Dora serves as treasurer. The group members make a living in various industries, including: backpack and apron manufacturing, poncho and sweater knitting, food sales, vegetable sales, clothing sales and candy/sweet sales.

The support from this loan will be leveraged by the entire group to strengthen their business endeavors. Dora manages a fruit sales business that she started as her own initiative several years ago. Dora joined Pro Mujer at the invitation of a friend who was a member of the organization, and this is her first experience with an organization of this kind. She is grateful for the opportunity and support she has received, and for the savings she has been able to build up.

Dora plans to use the support from this loan to purchase fruit from the central markets in El Alto for resale at her business in the smaller fairs and markets in her community. Dora is married with three children, and this job is her source of income for covering household expenses.

In this group: Margarita, Carmen Rosa, Dora , Sonia Elsa , Maria Luisa, Amanda Esther
