A loan of $2,725 helped a member to buy a cooler.

Kamsap Kaquini Group's story

The “Kamsap Kaquini” communal bank will start its fourth cycle in Pro Mujer as part of the Panamericana Focal Center. It has 8 members led by a governing board with Aleida as its secretary. The communal bank members carry out a variety of businesses among which are: milk sales, blanket weaving, shoe heel sales, American clothes sales, blended fruit and gelatin treat sales and food sales.

The loan they’ll take out will benefit small micro-business women like Aleida. She indicates that she’s been a member of Pro Mujer for three years having joined thanks to an invitation from her cousin who’s a member of the institution. She currently has a business selling food (Broaster-style chickens). She makes it known that she started this business years ago with support from her family and currently has her own business.

The loan she’ll take out now is to buy equipment (purchase a cooler) that she’ll buy from stores and then set up at home. This way of working makes it possible for her to generate resources to support her home the best possible way since she’s single living with her parents. When asked what she likes about Pro Mujer, she answers that she likes the meetings.

In this group: Norah Elisa , Aurelia, Carmen , Rosa , Lourdes Raquel, Genara, Faustina, Aleida Elvira
