A loan of $2,350 helped a member to buy dried peaches.

Rositas Group's story

The ROSITAS communal bank will begin its sixth cycle with Pro Mujer as part of the Senkata center. It’s made up of eight ladies and directed by a board of directors where Lorenza serves as president. The members have different businesses, such as a candy stand, soft drink sales, detergent sales, a neighborhood store, blankets, party favors, livestock, jewelry, groceries, and a pharmacy.

This loan will benefit their small businesses, including Lorenza’s, who has been with Pro Mujer for two years, having joined on invitation from a promoter who visited her in her home. She has a business where she sells drinks and says that she learned this business on her own.

She will use the money from this loan to buy dried peaches from vendors in La Paz and later sell them in her space. This work allows her to generate income to support her household; she is married and has five children.

When asked what she likes about Pro Mujer, she says that she likes the training and loans.

In this group: Lorenza , Virginia, Marcelina, Rosmery, Enriqueta, Maria, Brigida Cristina, Mery Karla
