Amanecer De Huayhuasi Group's story

The communal bank Amanecer Huayhuasi will begin their 2nd cycle in Pro Mujer as part of the Centro Focal de Patacamaya. It is made up of 10 members and they are headed by a board where Leonora is the President. The businesses that the members of the communal bank have are varied and among them are: making and selling textiles, metal plater, driver, making earrings, grocery store, selling spare parts, making gloves, and growing potatoes.

The loan will benefit the microenterprises where Leonora is a member. She says that this is her first time with Pro Mujer, and she joined through the invitation from a promoter from the institution who visited her home. Currently she has a crafts business (making gloves); she discloses that she learned the business from her parents who are in this line of work.

The loan that she is getting is to increase her capital (to buy wool) that she will acquire from the markets in the city of El Alto and later she will make and sell her creations to a business that exports this product. This line of work allows her to generate resources to maintain the household as she is single and takes care of her parents.

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