A loan of $1,800 helped a member to buy wool and baby clothes.


Jardin De Rosas Group's story

The communal association "Jardín de Rosas" is starting its twelfth cycle in Pro Mujer as part of the Centro Focal de Los Andes. This group is made of eight members and led by a management team where Edelberta is the president. The businesses of its members are varied and include a grocery store, blanket knitting, and the sale of "salchipapas" (mix of sliced pan-fried beef sausages and french fries), baby clothes, socks and cosmetics. The loan requested will benefit small microentrepreneurs, among which is Edelberta. She has been with Pro Mujer for several years and joined after being invited by some friends that were already members of the institution. She currently runs a business selling baby clothes. She learned from her aunt and then decided to start her own company. She will use the loan to buy stock (wool and baby clothes) in bulk from the trade shows to sell later in her store. This is how she makes a living and brings resources to her household, as she's married and has three children. When asked why she likes Pro Mujer, she replies that she likes the savings, the loans, the training and the health area.

In this group: Edelberta , Marlene Maria, Addy Wendy, Vanesa , Fermina, Inocencia , Susana Felipa, Gabina Concepción
