A loan of $4,250 helped a member to buy packs of candy wholesale.

Nuevo Amanecer Bautista Group's story

The “NUEVO AMANECER BAUTISTA” community bank will start its second cycle in Pro Mujer as a part of the Los Andes center. It is made up of nine members and is led by a board of directors where Mery is the president. The businesses that the members of the communal bank have are varied. Among them we have: selling vegetables, selling food and candies, making clothing, selling salchipapas, knitting wool sweaters, machine knitting blankets.

The loan that they will take out will benefit these micro-businesswomen, including Mery. She says that she joined Pro Mujer six months ago at the invitation of a consultant from the institution who visited her at her home. Right now, she has a business selling food and candies. She says that she learned this business on her own.

The loan that she will take out now is to increase her capital by buying packs of candy wholesale that she will acquire from wholesalers. Later she will sell them from her locale. This work allows her to generate income to support her home as much as possible, because she is married and has two children.

When asked what she likes about Pro Mujer, she responds that she likes the health portion and the credit trainings.

In this group: Mery Laura, Maxima , Lorenza, Soraida Celia, Luadany, Rogelia Lourdes, Thamara, Martha , Santusa Nora
