A loan of $3,375 helped a member to buy nails and bolts.

Kantutas Group's story

The village bank KANTUTA is starting its ninth loan cycle with Pro Mujer, as part of the Senkata regional office. The group has eight members, and Rebeca is the chair of the board of directors. The members of the group earn their living in a variety of ways, including running a general store, making athletic clothing, and selling sweets, jackets, clothing, buttons, and food.
This loan will help these microentrepreneurs. Rebeca notes that she has had three loans with Pro Mujer, which she joined at the invitation of a friend who is a member of the institution. She currently has a hardware store, which she says she started seven years ago with the money she inherited from her mother.
She will use this loan to buy nails and bolts at the markets in the city of Oruro and then sell them in her business. This work allows her to bring in an income to support her family, since she lives with her partner and has two children.
When we ask her what she likes about Pro Mujer, she answers that she likes the health care and the loans.

In this group: Rebeca , Noemi, Primitiva , Rossy Mery, Martina , Exaltación , Delia, Ana Eugenia
