A loan of $2,400 helped a member to buy fabric.

Crecer Group's story

The communal association "CRECER" will start its first cycle at Pro Mujer as part of the Centro Focal de German Busch. The group has eight members and a management team where Julia is the president. The businesses represented are varied and include: "macramé" (fabric made with knots) craftsmanship, sport shoes' making, sale of wool, jackets' dressmaking, sale of food and sale of clothing.

The loan will benefit small microentrepreneurs, including Julia. She has been with Pro Mujer for a year after being invited by a consultant that visited her at her home. She currently owns a sports clothing dressmaking business. She started it several years ago when, after the arrival of her first son, she decided to build her own work space. She will use the loan to increase capital (buy fabric in the factories of El Alto) so that she can make the product and sell it in her showroom. This is how she obtains resources for her family. She lives with her partner and two children.

When asked about Pro Mujer, she says she likes the opportunities and medical services offered by the institution.

In this group: Julia Juanita, Claudia Carmen , Rosendo Silvestre , Maribel Angelica , Lucia Cristina , Veronica , Juana Luisa , Lourdes
