A loan of $3,000 helped a member to buy clothing.

Rositas Group's story

The communal bank "ROSITAS" is beginning its fourth cycle in the Pro Mujer women's program at the social center Los Andes. It is comprised of eight members whose board is directed by Herminia, the president. The diverse businesses of the members include: weaving of blankets, sales of potatoes, sales of new clothing and hardware sales.

The loan they are requesting will help the small business owners, including Herminia who has been a member of Pro Mujer for three years. She joined by invitation from a consultant from the institution who visited her at home. Her current business is selling clothing and she started it with merchandise she bought with loans through Pro Mujer.

The loan she is requesting now is to buy clothing at wholesale markets so she can sell it at her stall. This means of income allows her to generate resources to maintain her household. She is married and has nine children.

When asked what she likes most about Pro Mujer, she says it is the credit, training and health area.

In this group: Herminia, Ortencia, Susana Rebeca , Cristina, Matilde , Julia , Hilda , Gregoria
