A loan of $2,575 helped a member to buy paper.

Corazones Unidos Group's story

The “CORAZONES UNIDOS” communal bank will begin its first cycle with Pro Mujer as part of the Villa Exaltación center. The group is made up of nine members and directed by a board of directors, where Pamela serves as the president. The members are involved in various businesses, including an electrical workshop, construction services, a bookstore, clothing sales, transportation services, sneaker sales, food sales, and diaper sales.

This loan will help their small businesses, including Pamela’s. She is beginning her first cycle with Pro Mujer, having joined on a friend’s invitation who is also a member. She has a printing workshop and says that she started in this business by working in the shop and in time the boss passed it on.

She will use this loan to increase her capital and buy paper in quantity in El Alto and then sell it from her shop. This type of work allows her to generate income to support her family, since she is single and has a son.

When asked what she likes about Pro Mujer, she says that she likes the health care and savings that the institution offers.

One of the members does not appear in the image because she was at a medical appointment.

In this group: Pamela Marlene, Celia Vilma*, Wendy Giovana, Paola Carmen Rosa, Ruben , Susana, Abigail Damaris, Eva, Zaida Margot
