A loan of $3,125 helped a member to buy cattle.

Corapata Central Group's story

A.C. “CORAPATA CENTRAL” will begin its first loan cycle with Pro Mujer, as part of the Centro Focal de Copacabana. It is made up of 10 members and is run through a directive board. Susana is the Chairwoman of the board. The members of the community association have various businesses, including: milk sales, cattle sales, corner stores and cheese sales.

The loan requested will benefit a number of small businesses, Susana's business among them. This is the first time Pro Mujer has taken part and Susana found out about the opportunity through a friend who is a member of the institution. Currently, she runs a business producing and selling cheese. She began the business on her family's suggestion, after they saw that she had some milking cows, which are the primary source of production.

The loan will help to increase her animal stock which she will buy from neighbouring communities. After raising her cattle, she will then be able to make the product she sells. This type of work allows her to generate income to maintain her household, as she is married and has two children.

When asked what she likes about Pro Mujer, she says that she likes the benefits on health and liquidity.

In this group: Susana Dionisia, Felicidad Francisca, Abdon , Cipriano, Janeth , Miriam, Nelly, Yuhana, Jhonny, Teresa
