A loan of $1,775 helped a member to buy a chicken fryer.

Miski Ñawi Group's story

The MISKI ÑAWI communal bank will begin its first cycle with Pro Mujer, as part of the Panamericana Center. The bank is made up of six members and directed by a board of directors where Carmen Rosa serves as the president. The members have various businesses including food sales, sewing, knitting by hand, vest and shirt making, and fruit sales.

This loan will benefit the small businesses, including Carmen Rosa’s. This is the first time she has been a part of Pro Mujer and she joined after having been invited by a relative who is also a member. She has a food selling business and started this business on her mother’s recommendation and from a previous business. She currently works from home.

She is asking for this loan in order to increase her working capital (to buy a chicken fryer). She will buy it in the La Paz fairs and then make and sell in her selling area. This will allow her to generate an income with which to support her financial needs.

When asked what she likes about Pro Mujer, she says that she likes the health care support.

In this group: Carmen Rosa, Torivia , Teodora Josefina , Francisca Ayde , Lizet, Florentina
