A loan of $4,200 helped a member to buy detergents.


Buena Esperanza Cajata Pampa Group's story

The Communal Bank “Buena Esparanza Cajata Pampa” is starting its second loan cycle with Pro Mujer as part of the Achacachi Community Center. This group consists of eight members and is led by a Board of Directors in which Sra. Carmen is the president. The members of this Communal Bank engage in different businesses such as weaving blankets, weaving sweaters, selling vegetables, selling food, selling livestock, and selling detergents.

This loan will benefit small entrepreneurs such as Sra. Carmen. She says that this is her second year with Pro Mujer. Carmen joined after receiving an invitation from a promoter of the organization who came to her house to visit her. She currently has a business of selling detergents. Carmen has become more knowledgeable about this business since her friends who were in the same line of work recommended that she start it.

The loan she is receiving now will be used to increase her capital for buying detergents. She will acquire her products from the wholesale vendors in the city of El Alto and then sell them from her retail space. Working in this manner will enable her to generate income for supporting her family. Carmen is married and has three children.

When asked what she likes about Pro Mujer, Carmen said that she enjoys the training seminars offered by the organization.

In this group: Carmen Beatriz , Juana, Alicia, Nohra , Rufina, Norah Esperanza , Sonia , Silvia
