A loan of $2,225 helped a member to buy seed.


Central Group's story

The “CENTRAL” communal bank will start its second loan cycle with Pro Mujer, as part of the Patacamaya regional office. It is made up of eight members and is directed by a Board with Virginia as the President. The businesses run by the members of the communal bank are varied. Among them are: sale and production of milk, corner shop, raising and selling cattle, production and sale of cheese, knitting blankets.

The loan they take out will benefit small micro businesses where Virginia is a member. She points out that it's her first cycle as a member of Pro Mujer. She joined by invitation from a promoter of the institution who visited her at home. Currently she has a potato production business; she says that she learned this business years ago from her family. At the moment she is continuing to develop it as a source of income.

The loan that she will take out now is to increase the capital (to buy seed) which she will get from the sellers of the city of La Paz, and after the production she will sell it to order. This type of work allows her to generate income to maintain her home as much as possible. She lives in a common law marriage and has two children.

When asked what she likes about Pro Mujer, she replied that she likes the training in health and loans.
