A loan of $4,025 helped a member to buy vegetables.

Jazmin Ii Group's story

The communal bank “Jazmin II” will start its first cycle with Pro Mujer, as part of the Focal Center Panamericana. It has 9 members led by a governing board, of which Miriam is the president. The members of the communal bank carry out diverse businesses, including: selling variety meats, selling friend fish, car driver, clothes sales, shirts sales, food sales, a butcher shop and selling cellphones.

The loan they’ll take out will benefit small micro businesswomen, and Miriam is one of them. She joined Pro Mujer 10 years ago, through an invitation from other members of her group who were already partners in the organization. Some years ago, Miriam used to sell boiled beverages as a street vendor, but thanks to her savings and to the loans from the organization, Miriam bought pots, stoves and opened her own eatery, where she sells her products now.

The loan she is requesting is to buy vegetables from wholesalers at the city El Alto, and afterwards, she will prepare and sell the foods in her business. This will allow her to generate income to support her household, as Miriam is married and has 3 children.

When asked what services offered by Pro Mujer she likes the most, Miriam answers that it is the focus on healthcare that she likes.

In this group: Ramona Miriam, Emiliana Catalina , Jhoanna Erika , Marcelo Alfredo, Pocha, Wendy Danys, Irma Eloisa , Dina, Gisela Michelle
