A loan of $5,475 helped a member to purchase clothing.

Kory Tawaco Group's story

The 'Kory Tawaco' Communal Bank will begin its twentieth cycle with Pro Mujer as part of the Villa Exaltación Community Center. It is made up of 8 members and run by a board of directors, of which Beatriz is the president. The members of this communal bank carry out a variety of different businesses, such as selling books, cosmetics, clothing, blankets, fried pork rinds and fried potatoes.

Beatriz is one of the female micro entrepreneurs who will benefit from the loan. She says that she joined Pro Mujer two years ago, invited by one of the advisers of the group that came to visit her at her house. At present she has a business selling clothing that she launched on her own using savings that her family had.

The loan she will take out now is to increase capital by purchasing clothing at the fairs in the city of El Alto to sell later at her shop. This type of work allows her to generate resources to support her home as best she can since she is single.

When asked what she likes about Pro Mujer she responds that she likes the loan and the training.

In this group: Beatriz, Alicia, Ninfa Porfiria, Alejandra , Gioseline Noelia, Cristina , Roxana Fernanda , Maritza
