Rosas Visalaya Group's story

The communal bank "ROSAS DE VISALAYA" will begin its second loan cycle in Pro Mujer, as part of the Copacabana regional office. This group is composed of 8 members and is led by a board of directors with Nora serving as the President. The businesses that the members of the communal bank undertake are varied; among others there are the following: fishing, neighborhood grocery store, milk sales, alcohol sales, cheese sales.

The loan that they will take out will benefit small business owners such as the member Nora. She says that she has been a part of Pro Mujer for 1 year, joining by an invitation from a consultant of the institution who went to visit her at her home. Currently, she has a business making and selling cheese; she says that she acquired this business from her parents several years ago.

The loan that she will take out is to increase her capital to buy livestock that she will acquire from fairs in neighboring communities. She raises the cattle and makes cheese, which she sells in her place of business. This form of work allows her to generate resources to maintain her home as best as possible since she is married and has two daughters.

When asked what she likes about Pro Mujer, she responded that she likes the savings.
