A loan of $3,525 helped a member to buy rice, noodle, sugar, etc.


Pajsimama Group's story

The Pajsimama group began the sixth cycle with Pro Mujer as part of the Centro Focal de Senkata. It is made up of eight members and is directed by a board where Fabiana is the Treasurer. The businesses that the members of the community association manage are various. Among them are selling vegetables, hosiery, chicken, fruit, network games, clothes, and sewing sweatshirts. The loan that they are taking will benefit the small enterprises where Fabiana is a member. She indicated that she joined Pro Mujer two years ago, joining on the invitation of one of her friends who was a member of the institution. Currently, she has a neighborhood shop business. She says that she learned this business on the recommendation of her parents after she married. The loan that she will take now is to expand capital (purchase rice, noodles, sugar, etc.) that she will acquire in the markets of the city of La Paz and later will sell from her shop. This form of work allows her to generate resources since she is married and has two children. When asked what she likes about Pro Mujer she responded that she likes the training about loans and health.

In this group: Yohana, Victoria, Delfina, Esther, Azucena Fabiana, Maxima , Nora Elizabet, Rufina
