A loan of $3,975 helped a member to buy canned food, oil and supplies.

Flor De Habas Group's story

The communal association "FLOR DE HABAS" is going to start its fourth cycle with Pro Mujer, as part of the Centro Focal de Villa Tejada. It has eight members and is led by a management team where Anabel is the president. The businesses that the members run are varied: dressmaking for women, sale of candy, grocery store, bakery, driver services, sale of fruits and veggies, etc.

The loan will benefit small microentrepreneurs, Anabel among them. She has been part of Pro Mujer for a year, after being invited by a colleague who is a member of the institution. She currently owns a grocery store, a business that she started when she realized her neighbors needed a place to buy nearby.

She will use the loan to invest in capital (canned food, oil, supplies) that she will buy in wholesale stores in the city of El Alto. She will then sell the items in her retail space. This allows her to generate enough resources to support her household, as she is married and has one child.

When she is asked about what she likes in Pro Mujer, she says she likes the areas of training and health.

In this group: Anabel Dorys, Asunta Magdalena, Mariela Bethzabel, Erwin, Miriam, Rose Mary , Evelyn Jheannete , Melisa Angela
