Triunfando Juntas Group's story

The “TRIUNFANDO JUNTAS” communal bank will start its new cycle with Pro Mujer as a part of the Juan Pablo Center. It is made up of nine members and led by a board of directors where Angélica is the president. The businesses that the members of the communal bank have are varied. Among them are a neighborhood store, selling clothes, selling cosmetics, selling drinks, selling cookies, and artisanal shoemaking.

The loan they will take out will benefit the micro-businesswoman, among them Angélica. She says that she joined three years ago at the invitation of a friend who is a member of the institution. Right now, she has she has a business selling cosmetics. She learned about this business from a friend, but before she sold candies and has experience in sales.

The loan she will take out now is to increase capital by buying cosmetics that she will acquire in the traditional fairs wholesale. Later she will sell them in her sales space and this work will allow her to generate resources to support her family, since she is in a common law marriage and has two children.

When asked what she likes about Pro Mujer, she says that she likes the ease of payments.
