A loan of $3,575 helped a member to buy wool.

Generación Group's story

The lending group “GENERACIÓN” will begin its first lending cycle with Pro Mujer, as part of its Focal Center of the Andes. This group is composed of 8 members and is directed by an executive group of which Martha is the President. The businesses of each of the members are different, and include: sewing blankets, butcher shops, selling clothes, sewing baby items, making alpaca blankets, and selling bicycles.

This loan will benefit Martha, who indicates that she joined Pro Mujer 8 years ago after receiving an invitation from a Loan Officer of the institution who went to visit her in her home. Currently, Martha works making and selling blankets, a business which she started after learning how to knit from a friend.

The loan that she is asking for now is to buy more wool, which she will buy from the bulk sellers in the city of El Alto. She will then make her blankets and sell them to her clients. This work enables her to generate the necessary resources to maintain her family, since she is married and has 4 children.

When asked what she likes about Pro Mujer, Martha responds that she likes working as part of a lending group and benefits from the advice that she receives.

In this group: Martha, Virginia Clara, Nasaria, Rosalia , Fayrus, Jhazmin Lourdes, Julian Valerio, Clementina Andrea
