A loan of $2,925 helped a member to buy clothing.

Perlas Doradas Group's story

Perlas Doradas Communal Bank will start its sixth loan cycle with Pro Mujer as part of the Collpani regional office. It's made up of eight members governed by a board of directors of which Angélica's the president. The bank members carry out a variety of jobs, including a neighborhood store, sewing wallets, vegetable sales, macramé, clothing sales, and a florist.

The loan will benefit small business entrepreneurs like Angélica. She said she has been a member of Pro Mujer for a year, having joined on the invitation of a friend who's a member. Currently she sells clothes, a business she learned a few years ago on her own and started so she could generate an income.

Angélica's loan is to increase her capital and buy clothing in stores in the city of La Paz and later sell in her sales stall. This job allows her to earn income to support her household to the extent possible, because she's married and has four children.

When asked what she likes about Pro Mujer she says the health and loan training they offer.
