Trabajadoras De Señor De La Cruz Group's story

The A.C. “TRABAJADORAS DE SEÑOR DE LA CRUZ” will start its sixth cycle in Pro Mujer, as part of the Centro Focal de los Andes (Focal Center of the Andes). It is formed by eight members and is directed by a board of directors, where Berta is Secretary. The businesses that the members carry out are diverse; among them they have: the sale of sports attire, sale of freeze-dried potato (chuños), sale of potatoes, sewing jackets, sale of coca leaves. The loan they will get will benefit the small micro entrepeneurs, where Berta is a member. She says that she has been part of Pro Mujer for two years, entering the group through the invitation of a friend who is a member of the institution. Currently she has a handcraft business in knitting. She wants to state that she learned this business many years ago and currently she has it as her source of work. The loan that she will get is to increase capital (to buy wool at wholesale prices) that she will purchase in the wholesale stores of the city of El Alto, and after production she will sell in her sales space. This kind of work allows her to generate resources to support her family, since she is married and has four children. When she is asked what she likes from Pro Mujer she answers that she likes the training that the institution offers her.
