Rosales Group's story

The communal bank "Rosales" will start their 4th loan cycle in Pro Mujer at the Senkata central office. This group has 8 members, and is led by a board of directors headed by Liduvina, who is the President. The members of this group have a variety of businesses, including: clothing sales, blanket sales, dressmaking, the production and sales of suits, knitting, condiment sales, and cattle sales.

The loan that they are taking will benefit this group of small businesswomen, including Liduvina. She says that she joined Pro Mujer 2 years ago at the invitation of a friend who is a member of the institution. Now she has a business selling auto parts. She discloses that she learned this business under the guidance of her godmother, who taught her the spare parts business.

The loan that she is taking now will be used to increase her working capital; she will buy bearings, bolts and wheels from the wholesale businesses in the city of La Paz to later sell from her sales post. In this way, she can generate resources to support her family. She is married and has 4 children.

When asked what she likes about Pro Mujer, she answered that she enjoys spending time with the other members, and getting a loan with little collateral.

In this group: Liduvina, Luisa , Enriqueta, Irene, Celia , Herminia, Olga , Lupe Norma
