A loan of $3,025 helped a member to purchase blankets.

Yapuchiri 7 Group's story

The Yapuchiri 7 community bank is starting their 10th cycle with Pro Mujer as part of the German Busch regional center. The group is made up of eight members and directed by a board where Gregoria is the president. The businesses that the members have are varied and include product sales, food services, and clothing production.

The loan they are requesting will benefit small business owners like Gregoria. She joined Pro Mujer three years ago at the invitation of a friend who is a member of the institution. Currently she has a business selling blankets. She says she started this business on advice from her family. She travels to the border of the country to get these products.

She is requesting this loan to increase her merchandise and purchase more blankets. She will acquire them from wholesale vendors on the border of Bolivia and Peru and later sell them at her sales space. This type of work allows her to generate income to support her family since she is married and has three children.

When asked what she likes about Pro Mujer, she responded that she likes working with the group and the savings.

In this group: Gregoria , Rosmery Aide, Fanny , Florencia, Hilda *, Danitza Karen, Florentina , Marisol
