A loan of $3,425 helped a member to buy fruit.


Flor De Verano Group's story

The “FLOR DE VERANO” communal bank is in its first cycle with Pro Mujer, as part of the Collpani center. It’s made up of eight members and directed by a board of directors where Jvana serves as the president. The members’ businesses include selling towels, clothing sales, food sales, juice sales, stuffed animal sales, pants sales, transportation services, selling socks, CD sales, secretarial services, and fruit sales.

This loan will benefit their small businesses, including Jovana’s. She has been with Pro Mujer for three years and joined on the invitation of another member. She has a fruit selling business and says that she learned this business from her aunt because she used to help her starting when she was three years old. She decided to set up her own business when she had her first child. ` This loan will allow her to increase her working capital and buy fruit from the larger vendors in La Paz and then sell the merchandise in her stall. This type of work allows her to generate income to support her family. She is in a common law marriage and has three children.

When asked what she likes about Pro Mujer, she says that she likes the training on loans and health.
