A loan of $5,475 helped a member to buy fragrances.


Unión Ninfas - Joyitas Group's story

The communal bank "Unión Ninfas - Joyitas" will begin its 14th loan cycle with Pro Mujer as part of the Villa Adela Regional Center. It is composed of 11 members and is led by a board of directors, of which Señora Jeanett is the secretary. The businesses that the members of the communal bank run are varied; among them are selling shoes, selling clothing, selling juices, selling juices, selling soft drinks, selling school supplies, selling food, selling chicken dishes, neighborhood store, selling cosmetics, and weaving macramé.

The loan that they will take out will benefit these little microentrepreneurs, of which Señora Jeanett is one. She indicates that she joined Pro Mujer two years ago, entering at the invitation of her brother, who is a member of the institution. Now she has a business of selling fragrances. She lets it be known that she learned this business a number of years ago from her parents, since this was a family business. Later, with a little capital, she decided to set up an independent business.

The loan that she will take out now is to increase her capital to buy fragrances, which she will acquire from the factories in the city of El Alto, and later she will sell them in her sales space. This form of work allows her to generate resources to continue her studies.

When she is asked what she likes about Pro Mujer, she responds that she likes the areas of credit, health, and training that the institution offers.
