Yunguyo Group's story

The “Yunguyo” Association will start their 15th cycle with Pro Mujer, as part of the Pan-american Focus Center, it is formed by 10 members and managed by a board of directors where Martha is the President. The businesses that the members of the community association have are varied, among them are: vegetables and cheese sales, restaurant, purchase and sale of clothing, minibus services, beef tripe sales, stuffing sales, food sales, convenience store.

The loan they'll take will benefit small micro entrepreneurs where Martha is a member, she indicates being part of Pro Mujer for 15 years, joining after an invitation from her niece, who is a member of the institution and explained the work they do. She currently has a business of stuffing sales, she started it 15 years ago helping her sister-in-law sell these products, she later decided to start her own business taking advantage of the knowledge she had in this type of business.

The loan she will now take will be for working capital (to buy flour and containers) that she will buy in the stores of the city of El Alto and will later bring to her point of sale. This type of work allows her to generate resources for her family, as she lives with her common law partner and has nine children.
When asked what she enjoys about Pro Mujer, she says she likes the courses about health and credit.
