Senkata 2012 Group's story

The communal bank “Senkata 2012” will begin its 17th cycle at Pro Mujer as part of the Centro Focal de Senkata. It is made up of 9 members and is headed by a board where Erica is the President.

The business that the members of the communal bank are in are varied and among them are: wholesale sales of sports items, catalog sales, neighborhood store, food sales, clothing sales, and bookstore.

The loan they are requesting will benefit the small microenterprises where Erica is a member. She says that she has been a member of Pro Mujer for 17 years, joining through the invitation from a friend who is a member of the institution. Today she has a bookstore; she discloses that she launched this business with the savings she had in her Pro Mujer nest.

The loan that she is asking for is to increase her capital (to buy notebooks, geometry sets, pens, etc.) buying from the wholesalers in the city of La Paz and later selling them in her sales outlet. This way of working allows her to generate resources to maintain her household as much as possible as she lives in a partnership and she has a daughter.

When asked what she likes about Pro Mujer, she says that she likes the training in health and credit.
