Nuestra Fe Esta En Dios Group's story

Nuestra Fe Está en Dios Communal Bank will begin its first loan cycle with Pro Mujer as part of the Senkata regional office. It's made up of six members governed by a board of directors of which Elena is the president. The various businesses of the communal bank members include a neighborhood store, candy sales, jacket sales, and food sales.

This loan will benefit small business entrepreneurs such as Elena. She says it's the first time she has been a member of Pro Mujer, having joined on the invitation of her friend who's a member of the institution.

Currently she has a neighborhood store business. She says she undertook this business on her own initiative. Currently it's closed because she didn't have a lot of merchandise.

The loan she's getting now is to increase her capital by buying soft drinks, canned goods, and groceries, which she'll get from wholesale vendors in the city of La Paz and then sell in her sales stall. This type of work allows her to generate resources to support her household as much as possible, because she's married and has two children.

When asked what she likes about Pro Mujer she says the health and loan training.
