Jardin Del Sur Group's story

The “JARDINES DEL SUR” group is in their first cycle with Pro Mujer, as part of Villa Exaltación regional office. It's eight members are lead by a Board of Directors with Olga as the Treasurer. There is a variety of businesses amongst the members including the sale of cleaning products, shoe sales, cosmetic sales, selling CD's, a neighborhood store and selling clothes.

This loan will benefit these micro-entrepreneurs, including Olga. She indicated that this is her first time as a member of Pro Mujer, joining on the invitation of a promoter from Pro Mujer, who visited her home. She sells food, something she started a number of years ago. Before that she had worked as a cook's aide and got to know the business.

Olga will use the loan to increase her capital, buying rice, pasta and oil in the surrounding markets of the city of El Alto. And later she will sell the finished product in her commercial space. By working in this way she can generate enough income to support, as best as possible, her household. She lives with her life partner and their three children. When asked what she liked about Pro Mujer, she replied that she liked the life insurance.
