A loan of $4,375 helped a member to purchase wholesale vegetables..


Alianza Group's story

The community association group "ALIANZA" [Alliance] will begin its twenty-second cycle in Pro Mujer as part of the Pan American regional office. The group consists of eight members and is headed by a board of which Antonia is President. The businesses that the members of the community association have are varied and include the sale of chancaca (an Andean sweet), selling cheese, weaving and selling blankets, a locksmith shop, crafts, a neighborhood store, selling car decorations, and knitting garments.

The loan they are requesting will be useful for a small microentrepreneur like Antonia. She has been working with Pro Mujer for ten cycles, entering on an invitation from a friend who is also a member of the institution. Today, she has a business selling food. She learned this business on her own initiative observing the ample markets in the city of El Alto.

The loan she is requesting will bring an increase in working capital to purchase vegetables wholesale in the markets in the city of El Alto. She will then sell the products in her retail space. This business allows her to generate resources to support her family, her husband and two children.

When asked what she likes about Pro Mujer, Antonia says that she likes the health training offered by the institution.

In this group: Antonia, Eufracia, Celia, Sarah , Gladys, Ines Vicenta, Goel Petter, Roxana
