A loan of $3,950 helped a member buy potatoes.

Moradita Group's story

The Moraditas Group is beginning its second loan cycle with Pro Mujer, part of the Andes regional group. There are eight members and a Board of Directors led by President Sra. Simona. The members have a variety of businesses: selling peppers and detergent, selling fruit, knitting sweaters, food sales, selling used clothing, jewellery.

The loan they will receive will benefit small businesses such as the one run by Sra. Simona. She joined Pro Mujer a year ago at the invitation of one of the institution's advisors who visited her in her house. She currently has a business selling potatoes, a business she started on her own initiative several years ago.

The loan that Simona will receive is to be used as working capital to buy potatoes. She buys them wholesale at markets and then sells them from her own stall. The money she earns allows her to maintain her family as best she can. She is married and has three children.

What Simona most enjoys about belonging to Pro Mujer are the health classes.

In this group: Simona , Felipa , Corina , Soledad, Ramona, Eleana Ana , Elizabeth , Norha
