A loan of $3,750 helped a member to buy a refrigerator.


Miski Ñawi Group's story

The MISKI ÑAWI communal bank is beginning its second cycle with Pro Mujer, as part of the Panamericana center. It's made up of eight members and directed by a board of directors, where Lizet serves as the Treasurer. The members have different businesses, such as food, blanket making, snack sales, condiment sales, sweater and candy, and fruit sales.

This loan will help their small businesses, including Lizet's. She says that she has been with Pro Mujer for six months and joined on her mother's invitation, who is also a member. She currently has a food business and started it with her mother and her support twelve years ago.

This loan will help her improve her business (buy a refrigerator). She will buy it in one of the El Alto stores and then install it in her store. This work will allow her to generate income, since she has a son and is a single mother.

When asked what she likes about Pro Mujer, she says that she likes the health training and the loans.
