Aymaritas De Julian Apaza Group's story

The “AYMARITAS DE JULIAN APAZA” communal bank will start its first cycle in Pro Mujer, as a part of the Panamericana center. It is made up of six members and is led by a board of directors where Teodora is the member. The businesses that the members of the communal bank have are varied. among them are: weaving blankets, carpentry, selling medicinal products, Awayo artisanal products, weaving leggings, and a neighborhood store.

The loan they will take out will benefit the micro-businesswomen, among whom is Teodora. She indicates that this is the first the first time that she has joined Pro Mujer. She joined at the invitation of a consultant from the institution who went to visit her at her home. Right now, she has a business weaving blankets. She reports that she started this business with the help of a friend, who taught her this technique.

The loan she will take out now is to increase her capital by buying wool she will acquire in distribution stores in the city of La Paz to later use for production and sale in her locale. This work allows her to generate resources to support her home as much as possible, because she is married and has two children.

When asked what she likes about Pro Mujer, she responds that she likes the area of health.
