A loan of $3,350 helped a member to purchase wool.

Chojña Pampita Group's story

The Chojna Pampita community group will begin its third cycle with Pro Mujer as part of the Centro Focal de Copacabana. It is made up of eight members and is directed by a board where Eusebia is the president. The businesses that the members of the community association manage are varied. Among them are: blanket sales, rug braiding, sales, neighborhood shop, cheese sales, a grocery store.

The loan they are taking will benefit the small businesses where Eusebia is a member. She indicates that she has been a member of Pro Mujer for two years, joining on the invitation of a promoter of the institution who visited her at home. Currently, she has a business sewing and selling blankets. She disclosed that she learned this business from her mother who had the same business and she helped her since she was young. When she married and had a small amount of capital, she started her business.

The loan that she will now take is to expand capital to buy wool that she will acquire from the markets in the city of El Alto and later use for production and sales from her stall. This type of work allows her to generate income to support her family since she is married and has four children.

When asked what she likes about Pro Mujer, she responds that she likes the loan and training the institution offers.

In this group: Eusebia , Fermina Justa, Andrea, Nancy Fausta , Regina Virginia, Sabina, Margarita, Nelly
