Corazon De Amigas Group's story

The A.C. “CORAZON DE AMIGAS” will begin its sixth cycle with Pro Mujer as part of the Centro Focal de Santiago II. The group consists of 9 members and is directed by an executive board of which Patty is the President. The communal association members' business are varied and among them are: selling vegetables, making table cloths, selling coffee, grocery store, selling American clothing, selling fruit, selling stucco, mechanic shop, minibus service.

The loan that they will take will benefit the small microbusinesses where Patty is a member. She indicates that she joined Pro Mujer 20 years ago at the invitation of some of her friends that were members of the institution. Today she has a business selling fruit; she depends on this business that she started on the recommendation of her husband, who also works in the same business.

The loan that will be issued is to increase the capital (buying fruit) that will be acquired from the tropical communities of La Paz and then later sold in her business's space. This work will enable her to generate resources in order to support her home and family including her son.

When asked what she likes about Pro Mujer, she responds that she likes the continuing trainings.
