Angeles Del Cielo Group's story

The communal bank "Angeles del cielo" will start its 10th cycle in Pro Mujer, as part of the Focal Center of Santiago II. It is comprised of 8 members and directed by a board of directors, where Hilda is the secretary. The businesses that the members of the communal bank have are various. Among them are sweater knitting, under garment sales, beauty salon, a locksmith, DVD sales, neighborhood store, a trinket shop, and electrical appliance sales. The loan that they took out will benefit small businesses where Hilda is a member. She indicates that it has been 4 years since she joined Pro Mujer, joining through the invitation of a friend who is a member of the institution. Currently she has a business selling under garments. She started this business after finishing another job; she decided to start this business, with the goal of generating income.

The loan that she is taking out now is for the increase of capital (purchase of under garments in bulk) which she will acquire in the fairs of the city of El Alto, and afterward she will sell them in her sales space. This form of work allows her to generate income to support her family, since she is married and has 2 children.

Cuando se le consulta qué le gusta de Pro Mujer, ella responde que le gusta el área de salud que ofrece la institución y las amigas de su banca.

When asked why she likes Pro Mujer, she responds that she likes the health trainings that the institution offers and her friends at the bank.
