Angoritas 25 De Julio Group's story

The communal bank "ANGORITAS 25 DE JULIO” is beginning its fourth loan cycle with Pro Mujer, as part of the Los Andes regional center. It is made up of nine members and led by a directive board, with Janeth as President. The businesses operated by the members of this communal bank are diverse, including: blanket weaving, fried pork sales, clothing sales, furniture sales, a neighborhood store, and a grocery store.

The loan for which they are applying will benefit small enterprises such as that of the member Janeth. She reports that she has been with Pro Mujer for three loan cycles, joining on the invitation of a promoter of the institution who came to visit her in her home. Currently, she has a business selling clothing. She says that she started this business thanks to the initiative of her mother, who works in the same field, and who taught her about the kind of business she should establish.

The loan she will receive now is to increase her capital by buying clothing. She will acquire it at the distribution markets of the city of El Alto, and later she will sell it at her sales stand. This kind of work allows her to generate resources to support her household as well as possible, since she lives in a common-law marriage and has two children.

When asked what she likes about Pro Mujer, she responds that she likes the training and the health office.
