A loan of $3,050 helped a member to buy barley.

Rosario Corapata Group's story

The communal association "ROSARIO DE CORAPATA" is going to start its first cycle with Pro Mujer, as part of the Centro Focal de Copacabana. It has eight members and is led by a management team where Amalia is the president. The businesses that the members run are varied: sale of cheese and milk, and dressmaking.

The loan will benefit small microentrepreneurs, Amalia among them. This is the first time she is part of Pro Mujer, after being invited by a colleague who is a member of the institution. She currently has a business where she sells milk. This is her family business and she decided to continue independently.

She will use the loan to invest in capital (buy barley) in communal fairs close to where she lives. She will then feed her animals to commercialize the milk later on. This allows her to generate enough resources to support her household, as she is married and has five children.

When she is asked about what she likes in Pro Mujer, she says she likes that the loan benefits women.

In this group: Amalia Dorotea, Flora, Julia Tomasa, Felipa, Teresa Marga, Gregoria, Graciela Narcisa, Alberto
