A loan of $3,375 helped a member to purchase sheep.


Claveles L Group's story

The Community Association group "CLAVELES L" will start their first loan cycle at Pro Mujer as part of the Patacamaya Focus Center. The group consists of eight members and is headed by a board of which Sofia is the President. The businesses that the members of the community association undertake are varied including a butcher shop, buying and selling sheep, a bakery, food sales, and two sell school supplies.
The loan they are taking out will bring benefits to the small microentreprises in which Sofia is an integral part. This is her first time with Pro Mujer, acting on an invitation of a promoter of the institution who went to visit her home. Today she has a business buying and selling sheep. She has had this business for several years and she learned this business from her parents who had the same business as a family enterprise.
The loan will now bring a capital increase (for the purchase of sheep) which she will acquire at the community markets in the department of La Paz and later sell in the marketplace. This way of working allows her to generate resources to support her family as she is married with four children.
When asked what she likes about Pro Mujer, Sofia responds that she likes the loans and the health services and training offered by the institution.

In this group: Sofia, Betty Lizbetha, Edwin, Yola Nancy , Marlenia , Marina , Maria Elena , Sofia
