A loan of $3,300 helped a member to buy ribbon.

Munaypata Ii Group's story

The "Munaypata II" communal bank will start its ninth cycle in Pro Mujer, as part of the Alto Lima office. It is composed of eight members and it is directed by a board, of which Cristina is the President. The members of the communal bank have a variety of businesses. Among them are selling beds, selling fruit, making blankets, selling food, selling potatoes, and a grocery store.

The loan that they are taking out will benefit small microentrepreneurs, of which Cristina is one. She says that eighteen years ago she joined Pro Mujer, joining at the invitation of a neighbor who is a member of the institution and who spoke to her about the work they do. Currently she has a business arranging function rooms for social events; she started this business with her sister, but when she got married, she decided to establish her own business.

The loan that she will now take out is to increase capital (buying ribbon) that she will acquire on the Peru - Bolivia border and subsequently use in function rooms that need it. This form of work allows her to generate resources to support her family as much as possible, since she is married and has a son.

When she is asked what she likes about Pro Mujer, she responds that she likes the loan area and the medical care.
