A loan of $2,925 helped a member to buy cosmetics.

Las Obreras Group's story

The A.C. "LAS OBRERAS" will start its forth cycle in Pro Mujer as part of the Centro Focal de Villa Adela. The group is made of 8 members and led by a managing team, where Jhenny is the Treasurer. There are different businesses represented in the communal association: wholesale of sport footwear, transportation services, catalog sale, mechanic garage, grocery store, food retail, clothing store and hair salon.

The requested loan will benefit small micro-entrepreneurs like Jhenny. She has been part of Pro Mujer for 1 year, when a friend invited her. She currently owns a business selling cosmetics, something that she learned from her older sister 3 years ago, and works to improve it. She will use the loan to increase her assets by buying cosmetics in bulk from her suppliers that she will then sell in her store. This is how she makes a living and supports her family (she's married and has a son).

When asked about Pro Mujer and why she likes it, she replies that she likes its capabilities in the health arena.

In this group: Gladys Rosario , Elizabeth Eugenia, Zulema Elizabeth, Pamela, Vanessa, Maribel, Jhenny Grisel, Nieves
