A loan of $4,075 helped a member to purchase vegetables in bulk.

Hiscaoco Group's story

The "Hiscaoco" group is beginning their third loan with Pro Mujer as part of the Focal Group of Patacamaya. It is made up of 8 members and is run by a board of directors, of which Rumalda is the president. The businesses that the members have are varied, like production and sales of milk, vegetable sales, purchase and sales of cattle, transportation services, food sales, and cheese sales.

The loan that they will receive will benefit micro-businesses like Rumalda's. She tells us that this is the second year that she has been a member of Pro Mujer. She joined after a promoter from the institution visited her home and invited her to join.

She currently has a business selling food. She began working in this business on her own many years ago after seeing the market for these products. The current loan will be used to increase her working capital (to purchase vegetables in bulk). She will purchase the goods in the city of La Paz and later sell them in her sales space.

This job helps her to generate income to support her family, since she is married with eight children. When asked what she likes about Pro Mujer, she responded that she likes the other members of the group since they are thoughtful.

In this group: Rumalda, Sofia , Dora, Martina , Nora , Valeria, Serapio, Silveria
