A loan of $2,350 helped a member to stock her store.


Rositas Group's story

The “ROSITAS” communal bank is in its first cycle with Pro Mujer, as part of the Alto Lima center. It’s made up of eight members and directed by a board of directors where Cecilia serves as the president. The members’ businesses include a grocery store, sweater sales, sweat suit sales, hand knitting sweaters, jacket making for parades, book bags, and vegetable sales.

This loan will benefit their small businesses, including Cecilia’s. She says that this is her first time with Pro Mujer, having joined on the invitation of a promoter who visited her in her home. She has a neighborhood store and says that she got this business from friend and she decided to expand it.

This loan will allow her to increase her working capital and buy sugar, noodles, and cooking oil at the large La Paz stores and sell the merchandise in her stall. This type of work allows her to generate income to support her household, since she is a married and has three children.

When asked what she likes about Pro Mujer, she says that she likes the loans and health care that the institution offers.

In this group: Cecilia, Ricarda, Elena, Diana Lucia, Erika , Exalto , Veronica, Adriana
