A loan of $2,675 helped a member to buy fabric.

Madrid Group's story

The communal bank "MADRID" will begin its fourth loan cycle through the Pro Mujer Program at the social center in Collpani. The group is comprised of eight members and its president is Adelia. The members have different businesses including: door-to-door clothing sales, ESIKA products sales, seamstress, taxi driver, bookseller, food sales and a sewing shop.

The loan they are requesting will benefit the small business owners, including Adelia. She says this is the first time she is a part of Pro Mujer having been asked to join by invitation from a friend who is a member of the institution. Adelia has a sewing shop and learned her trade at a technical institute. Upon finishing her education she set up her own business and has been working in the activity for 18 years.

The loan she is requesting is to increase her work capital so she can buy fabric at stores in the city of El Alto. She will sell her finished products at her shop. Her job allows her to generate an income to support her household as best she can. She is married and has three children.

When asked what she likes about Pro Mujer, she says it is the health area.

In this group: Adelia, Carmela Simona, Danitza, Yhisela, Alejandra , Gladys , Nelson Omar , Andreina Valeria
