A loan of $3,925 helped a member to purchase wool for weaving.

Amigas De Sajama Group's story

The community association group "AMIGAS DE SAJAMA" will begin its third cycle at Pro Mujer as part of the regional office of Villa Adela. The group is composed of eight members and is headed by a board of which Natty is the President. Businesses that the members of this community association group carry out are varied and include knitting sweaters, weaving macrame, selling food, producing skirts, domestic service, and sewing sportswear.

The loan they are requesting will be useful for a small microentrepreneur like Natty. She has been working with Pro Mujer for four loan cycles, entering on the invitation of her friend who is also a member of the institution. Today she has a business selling fabric, blankets, and sweaters she makes with a weaving technique that she learned from her mother several years ago. She decided to begin her business after learning these lessons.

The loan she is requesting will be used to increase her working capital for the purchase of wool at wholesale shops in the city of El Alto. She will then make her product and sell it in her retail space. This business allows her to generate resources to maintain her home for her husband and three children.

When asked what she likes about Pro Mujer, Natty responds that she likes the saving program offered by the institution.

In this group: Natty, Veronica , Sofia Miriam , Juana, Maria Elena, Florencia Angelica , Celia, Eva
