Amazonas De Huayna Potosi Ii Group's story

The “Amazonas de Huayna Potosi II” Community Bank is beginning their seventh loan cycle with “Pro Women”, the central focus of German Busch. The group is made up of nine members and is run buy a board of directors, whose president is Virginia. The members have various types of businesses. Among these businesses are making blankets, selling shoes, selling shampoo, selling cell phone accessories, selling clothes, knotting blankets and selling hardware. The loans will benefit small businesses, such as the one run by Virginia. She has been a member of Pro Woman for the past three years. She was invited to be a member by a friend that is also a member. She has a business weaving macramé blankets. She learned how to do this as a child. From that time forward she has been in this business that has generated income.The loan that she is requesting will be used to buy more supplies (such as wool), which she buys at the neighborhood markets. She sells her work at a booth in the market. This work allows her to earn resources to be used to maintain her home, as she is married with two children.
When she was asked why she likes “Pro Woman”, she answered that she likes the ability to get loans and to be healthy.

In this group: Virginia Justiniana, Amalia, Maria , Delmira, Martha Virginia, Maria Rosario, Claudia Marisol, Lidia, Maria Claudia
