A loan of $5,175 helped a member to buy baby clothing.


Capullito De Oro Group's story

Capullito de Oro Communal Bank will start its third loan cycle with Pro Mujer as part of the Germán Busch regional office. It's made up of nine members governed by a board of directors of which Hilda's the president. The bank members carry out a variety of businesses, including a pet store, clothing sales, sewing sweatshirts, bus assistant, rug sales, candy sales, candied peanut sales, and baby clothing sales.

The loan they're getting will benefit small business entrepreneurs like Hilda. She says she has been with Pro Mujer for 16 loan cycles, having joined on the invitation of a friend who's a member. Currently Hilda has a business selling baby clothes. She started three years ago with baby caps and later expanded her merchandise with loans from Pro Mujer.

The loan Hilda's going to get is to increase her capital by buying baby clothes from the wholesale vendors in the city of El Alto to sell in her stall. This type of work allows her to generate income to support her household to the extent possible, because she's married and has three children.

When asked what she likes about Pro Mujer she says the health field and the savings.
