20 De Diciembre Group's story

The “20 DE DICIEMBRE” Communal Bank is starting its first cycle in Pro Mujer as part of the Panamericana Regional Hub. The group has eight members and is governed by a board of directors of whom Virginia is the secretary. The members' businesses are varied and include: quilting, egg sales, an employment agency, CD sales, making pants, making balls, and clothing sales.
This loan will benefit these small businesses. Virginia is a group member and says that she has been part of Pro Mujer for one year. She joined at the invitation of a sister-in-law who is a member of the institution. She has a business selling beauty products. She says that she started this business at the recommendation of a friend and has been in the business for one year.
This loan is for an increase in working capital (the purchase of beauty products). She will acquire products from the distribution companies and then sell them in her sales space. This work allows her to generate an income to support her family. She is in a relationship.
When asked what she likes about Pro Mujer, she responded that she likes the loans.
