Flor De Cielo Group's story

The Communal Bank “FLOR DE CIELO” (Flower of Heaven) will start its fourth cycle with Pro Mujer as part of the Senkata Community Centre. The group is comprised of eight members and it is lead by a Board of Directors where Luiza is the President. The businesses carried out by the members of the Communal Bank vary in the sales of: fruits and vegetables, clothing, shoes and potatoes.

The loan taken will benefit small micro entrepreneurs where Luiza is a member. She points out that she has been a member of Pro Mujer for two years, joining by invitation from a friend who is a member of the institution. At the present time she has a business selling fruits. She undertook this business with her parents' advice, who also have the same business.

The loan that she is now requesting is to increase capital (purchase of fruits) that she will buy from wholesalers in the city of La Paz, and later sell it in her retail space. This type of work allows her to generate income to support her family. Luiza is married and has six children.

When asked what she likes about Pro Mujer, she said that she likes the health and finance training.
