A loan of $6,075 helped a member to buy clothes.

Maranatha Group's story

The “Maranatha” communal bank will start the 13th cycle in Pro Mujer as part of the Villa Exaltación Focal Center. It has 8 members led by a governing board presided over by Adela. The communal bank members are in a variety of businesses among which are: clothing sales, lubricants store, underwear sales, shoe sales, meal sales and cereals sales.

The loan they’ll take out will benefit small micro businesswomen like Adela. She indicates that she’s been a member of Pro Mujer for ten years having joined thanks to an invitation from one of the institution’s advisers that visited her at home. She currently has a business selling clothes that she started on her own initiative using family savings.

The loan she’ll take out now is to increase capital. She will buy clothes from wholesalers in the city of El Alto and then will sell them in her sales space. This way of working allows her to generate income to support her home since she’s married and has five children. When asked what she likes about Pro Mujer, she answers that she likes the credit and sharing with her fellow members.
