Generación 2006 Group's story

The communal bank "Generación 2006" is entering its eleventh loan cycle with Pro Mujer. They are working with one of the organization's regional offices in Villa Exaltación. The group is made up of eight members and is headed by a Board of Directors. Luisa is the President of the Board. The members of the communal bank run a variety of businesses, including clothing sales, trouser sales, a grocery store, sales of powdered dyes, cosmetics sales, sales of sundry items, and wood carving.

The loan that they will take out will benefit small micro-businesses where Luisa is a member. She says that this is her eighth loan cycle with Pro Mujer. She joined the group at the invitation of a consultant from the institution, who came to visit her at her home. Currently, Luisa has a business running a neighbourhood convenience store. She began this business when she saw what was needed in her area.

The loan that she is taking out is to increase her stock (to buy rice, sugar, oil, etc.) which she will acquire at fairs in the city of El Alto and later set up in her place of business. This type of work allows her to generate resources to support her household as best as she can, since she is single and has three children.

When asked what she liked about Pro Mujer, she replied that she liked the training and the loans.
