Rocio Del Amanecer Group's story

The "Rocio Del Amanecer" communal bank is in its fifth cycle with Pro Mujer which is part of the focal point of Villa Exaltación. The group is made up of 8 member and is headed by a board of directors of which María Luisa is the president. The businesses run by the members are varied, and they include: a grocery store, mineral sales, mineral recycling, artisans, milk sales, cellular phone sales.

The requested loan will benefit small businesses that María Luisa is a member of. She indicates that she joined Pro Mujer two years ago following the invitation of a friend who is also a member of the institution. María Luisa has a business where she buys and sells minerals. She took on the business from her husband who prior to their marriage worked selling minerals. Later, they were able to expand the business with a small amount of capital that they had.

The loan she is currently seeking is to increase her inventory by purchasing minerals from the surrounding fairs in the city of El Alto. She will later sell the minerals in her store.

The work allows her to generate a sufficient income to maintain her home since she is married and has three children. When asked what she likes about Pro Mujer, she says she likes the medical services.

In this group: Maria Luisa, Elizabeth Brigida, Evelyn Helen , Alcira Lucy, Erlan Jose, Daniela , Susana , Elena
