A loan of $5,250 helped a member to buy rice, noodles and oil.

Buenas Nuevas Group's story

The communal association "BUENAS NUEVAS" is going to start its ninth cycle with Pro Mujer, as part of the Centro Focal de Villa Adela. It has eight members and is led by a management team where Claudia is the Secretary. The businesses that the members run are varied: sale of ESIKA products, sale of kitchens, shoe making, kitchen repairs, sale of electrical appliances, food sale, sale of coca leaf, etc.

The loan will benefit small microentrepreneurs, Claudia among them. She has been part of Pro Mujer for two years, after being invited by a colleague who is a member of the institution. She currently sells food, a business that she decided to start several years ago by her own initiative, as she needed to generate resources and this product is sold more frequently.

She will use the loan to invest in capital (buy rice, noodles, oil) in wholesale stores in the city of El Alto. She will then make the food and sell it at her grocery store. This allows her to generate enough resources to support her household, as she is married and has two children.

When she is asked about what she likes in Pro Mujer, she says she likes to share with the group.

In this group: Claudia, Richard, Justina, Laura, Nadir, Jeanett Fanny, Sinforiana Josefina, Ana Caren
