A loan of $1,025 helped a member to purchase foam.

Las Rosas De Guadalupe Group's story

The communal bank Las Rosas De Guadalupe is starting its first cycle with Pro Mujer. It belongs to the regional office of Santiago II and comprises six members. Niva is the President of their board of directors. The businesses run by the members of this communal bank are varied. They include making decorations, selling desserts and plantains, selling filling, selling vegetables and potatoes, and selling pork rinds.

The loan they are requesting will benefit this group of small businesswomen, of which Nivia is a member. She says she joined Pro Mujer six months ago through an adviser of the institution who went to see her at her house and invited her. She currently has a business selling party decorations, which she started with her mother's help over ten years ago.

The loan she is now requesting will be used to increase capital. She will purchase foam from the markets in the city of El Alto in order to make decorations and then sell them in her place of business. Working this way allows her to generate resources to support her household as much as possible, since she is married and has two children.

When asked what she likes about Pro Mujer, she replies that she enjoys the loans and the trainings.
