A loan of $6,075 helped a member purchase jewelry-making materials.

Kori Ampara Ii Group's story

The communal bank "KORY AMPARA II" will start its third term with Pro Mujer as part of the Collpani regional office. It is composed of ten members and is run by a board of directors with Ms. Rosmery as the president. The members run a wide variety of businesses, including the sewing of sportswear and blankets; the sales of clothing, candy, and foods; the weaving of sweaters and tablecloths; the crafting of wood benches, and even a neighborhood corner shop.

The loan that they are requesting will benefit the small businesses in Rosmery's group. She said that this is their eighth term as part of Pro Mujer, and that they joined at the invitation of a Pro Mujer promoter who came to visit her at her house. Currently, she runs a business selling jewelry. She told us that her children learned jewelry making, and at first, she began to sell these products to support her children's sales, but as she learned more over time, she decided to launch her own independent business.

This loan will be used to increase her capital by purchasing additional material for jewelry, which she will get from the wholesale markets in the city of El Alto. She will then make the jewelry and sell it in her sales space. This work allows her to generate income for her family as she is single and has two children.

When asked what she liked best about Pro Mujer, she said she liked the orientation provided by the credit counselors.
