A loan of $4,400 helped a member to buy fodder and barley.


Las Triunfadoras Group's story

The “LAS TRIUNFADORAS” Communal Bank is starting its first cycle in Pro Mujer as part of the Patacamaya Regional Office. There are ten members and the group is governed by a board of directors. Rufina is the group president. The members' businesses are varied and include: milk sales; vegetable, potato, potato starch, and tunta (dehydrated potato) sales; cheese sales; potato production; and making sports clothing. This loan will help these small businesses, one of which is Rufina's. Rufina tells us that this is her first time with Pro Mujer. She joined at the invitation of a promoter who came to visit her at home. She currently has a milk production business. She tells us that she learned this business from her parents and later decided to do it independently. This loan is for feeding her livestock (to buy fodder and barley). She will buy the feed in the markets surrounding her community and later feed it to her animals during the drought. This work allows her to generate an income to support her household where possible. She has a partner and three children. When asked what she likes about Pro Mujer, she replied that she likes the training and the loans.
