A loan of $5,075 helped a member to buy cleaning materials.


Flor De Durazno Group's story

The community association "FLOR DE DURAZNO" will begin the fourth cycle in Pro Mujer as part of the Focal Center of the Andes. It is made up of eight members and is headed by a board of directors where Primitiva is the President. The businesses that the member of the community association carry out are varied. Among them are: selling sweets and food, selling chincharron (Bolivian food), selling cheese, construction services, selling swimsuits, braiding rugs, selling drinks, and selling fruit.

The loan that they take out will benefit small micro-businesses where Primitiva is a member. She says that she joined Pro Mujer two years ago, joining by invitation of a promoter that went to visit her at her house. Today she has a business servicing public bathrooms. She says that she began this business by recommendation of some friends.

The loan she will now take out is to increase capital (purchase cleaning materials) that she will acquire from the markets in the city of El Alto and later use it in her service business. This form of work allows her to generate resources to maintain her family as she is single and with six children.

When asked what she likes about Pro Mujer, she responds that she likes the area of health that the institution offers.

In this group: Primitiva, Eugenia, Fermin , Pascuala, Jimena , Rosmery, Agustina Esperanza, Lourdes
