Primavera 2009 Group's story

The “Primavera 2009” communal bank will start its ninth cycle in Pro Mujer as part of the Senkata Focal Center. It has nine members led by a governing board presided over by Estephanie. The communal bank members carry out a variety of businesses among which are neighborhood store, blanket weaving, fruit sales, vest sales and blanket sales.

The loan they’ll take out will benefit small, micro businesswomen like Estephanie. She indicates that she joined Pro Mujer seven years ago thanks to an invitation from a girlfriend who is a member of the institution. At present, she has a business selling fruit and fruit juice. She relates that she started the business on advice from her mother who sold the same thing.

The loan she’ll take out now is to increase capital. She’ll buy oranges and blenders from wholesalers in the city of La Paz and then sell in her stand. This way of working makes it possible for her to generate resources to support herself and her parents. When asked what she likes about Pro Mujer, she responds that she likes the health area and the credit.
