A loan of $2,750 helped a member to buy alpaca yarn.

Nevaditas De Corapata Group's story

The NEVADITAS DE CORAPATA communal bank will begin its first cycle with Pro Mujer as part of the Copacabana center. The group is made up of nine members and directed by a board of directors, where Juana serves as the president. The members have different businesses, such as blanket making, sweater knitting, and livestock sales.

This loan will benefit their small businesses, including Juana’s. This is her first time with Pro Mujer, having joined on the invitation of a promoter who visited her in her home. She has an alpaca blanket business and says that she learned this business a few years ago out of necessity, since this is a product that her friends request so that they could sell them in the La Paz fairs.

She is asking for this loan to buy alpaca yarn from the traditional fairs in El Alto, and make her wares to order. This type of work will allow her to generate income in order to maintain her household; she is married and has three children.

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

In this group: Juana Elena, Bertha, Fanny Roxana , Monica , Alicia, Gladiz , Julia Delfina, Ines , Elena Sofia
