A loan of $4,200 helped a member to buy cattle.

Flor De Rosa Group's story

The “Flor de Rosa” (Rose Flower) communal bank will start its first cycle in Pro Mujer as part of the Patacamaya Focal Center. It has 10 members led by a governing board whose treasurer is Ernestina. The members of the communal bank carry out a variety of businesses among which is dehydrated potato production, milk production, potato growing and cattle sales.

The loan they’ll take out will benefit small micro businesswomen like Ernestina. She indicates that this is the first time she’s joined Pro Mujer having joined thanks to an invitation from one of the institution’s promoters that visited her hat home. She currently has a business selling cattle and she makes it knows that she started the business following her mother’s recommendation years ago since her entire family is in this type of business.

The loan she’ll take out now is to increase capital. She will buy cattle in markets in surrounding communities and then sell it to order. This way of working makes it possible for her to earn income to support her home as best as possible since she’s married. When asked what she likes about Pro Mujer, she answers that she likes the training.
