A loan of $3,150 helped a member to purchase fabric.

General Pando Group's story

The Community Association "GENERAL PANDO," is in their fifteenth business cycle with Pro Mujer (Pro Woman) and with the Senkata Community Center. This group is made up of nine members and is managed by a board of directors on which Julia serves as president. The group members work in various industries, including: sewing sports clothing, food sales, beverage sales, weaving, etc.

The support from this loan will be used to benefit and strengthen the business endeavors of the entire group, including Julia, the group's president. Julia joined Pro Mujer five years ago at the invitation of her sister-in-law, who is a member of the institution. Julia runs a small business sewing and selling sports jerseys and jackets. She learned this trade and skill while working with her aunt for several years, and she subsequently decided to open her own workshop. When asked what she appreciates about Pro Mujer, Julia highlighted the financial and health training that the members receive.

With the support from this loan, Julia plans to purchase fabric for use in making her sports garments. She purchases fabrics in bulk from distributors in La Paz, and then uses those fabrics to fulfill client orders. This job has allowed her to generate income for covering household expenses and her family's needs. She is married with two children.

In this group: Julia , Nemia Carolina, Gabriela, Blanca Eli , Martha, Josefa, Irma Rebeca, Trifonia, Alicia
