Rositas De Pantini Group's story

The “ROSITAS DE PANTINI” credit group is in its first cycle in Pro Mujer as a part of the Copacabana center. It is made up of eight members and led by a board of directors of which Angélica is the president. The businesses that the members of the credit group have are varied. Among them are selling milk, sewing clothes and bricklaying.

The loan they will take out will benefit the micro-businesswomen, Angélica. She says that this is the first time that she has been a a part of Pro Mujer. She joined at the invitation of a consultant from the institution who went to visit her at her house. Right ow, she has a business selling cheese. She says that she learned this business from her mother and with what little capital she had.

The loan she will take out now is to increase capital by buying milk. She will acquire it in the nearby communities and later she will sell it in her sales space. This work allows her to generate resources to support her family, since she is married and has four children.

When asked what she likes about Pro Mujer, she says that she likes the loans and the trainings that the institution offers.
