A loan of $2,725 helped a member to buy wholesale milk, cheese, and meat.

Corazon Unido Group's story

La A.C. “CORAZON UNIDO” will begin its fifth cycle in Pro Mujer as part of Centro Focal de Santiago II, it is comprised of 8 members and is led by a board of directors where Janeth is the secretary. The businesses of the members of the communal association are varied, and among them exist sewing covers, selling sweaters, a neighborhood store, selling utensils, selling laminated wood, selling flowers, and sewing backpacks.

The loan that they will take out will benefit the microbusinesses where Janeth is a member. She indicates that he has been a member of Pro Mujer for two years, joining through the invitation of the institution's promoter who visited her house. Right now, she has a business selling milk, cheese, and meat. She says that she started it several years ago because her mother had the same products in her business. After some time she decided to start her own independent business.

The loan that she will take out is to increase the capital to buy wholesale milk, cheese, and meat which she will obtain from the wholesalers in the city of El Alto, and afterwards she will sell them in her shop. This manner of job allows her to generate resources to support her family because she is single and has a son.

When she is asked what she likes about Pro Mujer, she says that she likes the loan payment meetings since she meets with her friends.
