A loan of $5,650 helped a member to buy quilts.

Luz A Las Naciones Group's story

The communal association "LUZ A LAS NACIONES" is going to start its tenth cycle with Pro Mujer, as part of the Centro Focal de Villa Tejada. It has eleven members and is led by a management team where Angélica is the treasurer. The businesses that the members run are varied: sale of quilts, dressmaking, grocery store, shoe making, sale of sodas, sale of construction materials, sale of food, supplies and condiments, etc.

The loan will benefit small microentrepreneurs, Angélica among them. She has been part of Pro Mujer for thirteen years, after being invited by a colleague who is a member of the institution. She currently sells quilts, a business that she started with a small capital. Thanks to the loan with Pro Mujer, she was able to expand the business and now plans to sell in other cities.

She will use the loan to invest in capital (buy quilts) in wholesale stores in the city of El Alto. She will then sell the quilts at her retail space. This allows her to generate enough resources to support her household, as she is single.

When she is asked about what she likes in Pro Mujer, she says she likes simplicity in the loan process.
