A loan of $3,825 helped a member to buy vegetables.

Las Mañaneras Group's story

The “LAS MAÑANERAS” communal bank is starting its fifth cycle in Pro Mujer as part of the Collpani Regional Office. It is governed by a board of directors, and Pascuala is the president. The members' businesses are varied and include: condiments sales, potato sales, canned food sales, grain sales, pop sales, vegetable sales, and food sales.
This loan will benefit these small businesses. Pascuala says that she has been part of Pro Mujer for five loan cycles. She joined at the invitation of a promoter who visited her at home. She currently has a business selling vegetables. She tells us that she learned this business several years ago when she saw how widely this product is sold.
This loan is for an increase in working capital (the purchase of vegetables) which she will acquire in the markets of the city of El Alto, wholesale. She will then sell the produce in her sales space. This work allows her to generate an income in order to maintain her household where possible; she is married and has three children.
When asked what she likes about Pro Mujer, she responded that she likes the health space.
