Joyitas De Villa Adela Group's story

The communal group "Joyitas de Villa Adela" [Little Jewels of Adela Village] will begin their twenty-sixth cycle with Pro Mujer as a part of the Adela Village Center. The group is made up of nine members, and they are overseen by a board of directors. Julia is the president. Members are involved in different types of businesses, including: selling beverages, cooking and selling pork cracklings, selling soda, selling children's clothing, providing telephone and call services, offering internet maintenance, and running a small restaurant.

The loan that the group takes out will benefit all of these small businesses. Julia is one member that will benefit. She says hat she has been a member of the institution for seven years. Presently, she has a sewing business, and she also sells tennis shoes. She learned this business from her parents; she has supported this family business since she was a young girl. After she got married, she decided to set up her own shop.

The loan she well receive is to grow her working capital by purchasing fabric. She will buy the fabric at wholesale stores in the city of El Alto. She will then make and sell the items that her customers request. This form of work allows her to generate resources so that she can maintain her home. She is married and has three children.

When asked what she likes most about Pro Mujer, Julia responds that she likes the health and credit training sessions.
