Ayo Ayo Group's story

The communal association "AYO AYO" is beginning its third cycle with Pro Mujer, as part of the Centro Focal de Patacamaya. The group is composed of 8 members and is directed by a board, of which Ms. Betty is the President. The members' businesses are varied and include: cell phone sales, food sales, vegetable sales, phone card sales, buying and selling livestock, and transportation. The loan will have important benefits for the group of small business owners of which Betty is a member. She says that she has already had two loan cycles with Pro Mujer, becoming involved at the invitation of a recruiter from the institution who visited her at home. Betty has a business selling food. She has had the business for three years, beginning it on her own initiative. The loan for which she is applying now will be used to augment her capital, buying supplies such as rice, oil, and noodles from wholesale vendors in the city of La Paz, which she will use to make items for sale at her business. This type of work allows Betty to earn income to maintain her home, because she is married and has a child. When she was asked what she likes about Pro Mujer, she responded that she likes the training in credit.

In this group: Betty, Ivan Gustavo, Macimo, Julia , Livertina , Juana , Araceli, Bertha
