A loan of $5,600 helped a member to purchase clothing to sell.


Torre Fuerte Group's story

The community association group "TORRE FUERTE" [Strong Tower] will begin its twenty-third cycle in Pro Mujer as part of the Los Andes regional office. The group consists of nine members and is headed by a board of which Maria Isabel is President. The businesses that the members of the community association have are varied and include selling clothes, selling cosmetics, food sales, and selling CDs. The loan they are requesting will be useful for a small microentrepreneur like Maria Isabel. This is her seventh year working with Pro Mujer, entering on an invitation from her sister who is also a member of the institution. Today, she has a business selling clothes. She learned this business in a previous job and decided to start her own independent business. The loan she is requesting will bring an increase in working capital to purchase clothing wholesale in the markets in the city of Oruro. She will then sell them in her retail space. This business allows her to generate resources to support her family, her partner and three children. When asked what she likes about Pro Mujer, Maria Isabel says that she likes the health services offered by the institution.

In this group: Maria Isabel, Paola Ayesa , Veronica Ruth , Andrea, Yhoselin, Teodocia, Marco Antonio , Martha, Blanca Patricia
