2 De Julio Group's story

The communal bank “2 de julio” will begin its seventh loan cycle with Pro Mujer, as part of Centro Focal de Panamericana. The group comprises 11 members, and its board president is Angélica. The members' businesses include selling clothing, shoes, chickens, oil, general merchandise, onions, and tomatoes and weaving and selling jerseys.

This loan will benefit micro businesses such as Angélica's. She has been a member of Pro Mujer for three years. She joined at the invitation of her cousin, who is a partner of the institution. She sells clothing, a business she started on an aunt's recommendation, and she has been engaged in this work for six years.

She will use this loan to buy wholesale clothing at fairs to later sell in her shop. This work allows her to support her family; she is married and has three children. When asked what she likes most about Pro Mujer, she mentioned the health facility.
