Flor De Damasco Group's story

Communal Bank “Flor de Damasco” is in its first cycle with Pro Mujer in the regional office of Patacamaya. The group is composed of twelve members and run by a board where Delia is the president. The members have different activities, such as growing fruits, making baskets and a butcher’s shop.

The loan they are requesting will help micro entrepreneurs such as Delia. She says this is the first time she is part of Pro Mujer and that she joined when a friend who is a member invited her. Delia grows fruits, an activity she learned when she was a little girl, as it is very common in her community.

With this loan she will buy compost from nearby localities and use it for her plantations. This business leaves her resources with which she tries her best to maintain her family, since she lives in a common-law marriage and has a son. She says that what she likes the most about Pro Mujer are the training sessions and the possibility to save some money.

In this group: Delia, Graciela, Dimelsa , Maria Cleofe , Herminia, Claudina Leonor , Irene Delia, Rosmilda, Julia, Francisca, Victor , Yaneth Nancy
