A loan of $5,550 helped a member to purchase construction materials and metals.

Agua Marina Group's story

The Agua Marina community bank will start their fourteenth cycle with Pro Mujer as part of the Collpani regional center. The group is made up of nine members and headed by an executive board, with Veronica as the President. The businesses that the group members have are varied and include: braiding blankets, mirror sales, grocery stores, hardware stores, and vegetable sales.

The loan they are receiving will benefit small businesswomen like Veronica. She has been a member of Pro Mujer for three years. She was invited to join by her mother, who is also a member. Currently she has a business selling mirrors and hardware. She learned this business for many years from her father, and it later became a family business.

She is requesting this loan to increase her capital and purchase construction materials and metals, which she will buy from Bolivian importers and later sell in her store. This type of work allows her to generate income to support her household, since she is single and has two children.

When asked what she likes best about Pro Mujer, she responded that she likes the health trainings and the loans.

In this group: Veronica, Ruth Esthela , Pamela Rosario, Nancy, Maxima Gladys , Maria, Fabiola, Juana , Ernesto
