A loan of $4,725 helped a member to purchase sheets and bed covers in bulk.

Maranatha Ii Group's story

The "Maranatha II" group is on its ninth loan with Pro Mujer. It is part of the Villa Exaltación Focal Group and is made up of eight members. It is run by a board of directors, of whom Ingrid is the president. The businesses run by the members include blanket making, jacket sales, artisan crafts, transportation services, general stores, and clothing sales.

The loan that they will receive will benefit microbusinesses like Ingrid's. This is her first year with Pro Mujer. She joined after a friend, who is a member of the institution, invited her. She currently has a business selling sheets and bed covers. She began this business through a cousin, who showed her how to acquire and sell these products.

The loan that she has requested is to increase her working capital so that she can purchase sheets and bed covers in bulk. She will purchase the products at near the Bolivian-Chilean border and later sell them in her store.

This job allows her to generate income to support her family, since she is single and has one child. When asked what she likes about Pro Mujer, she responded that she likes the other members of the group because they are kind.

In this group: Ingrith Araceli, Edgar Rolando , Maria Del Carmen, Paola Angelica, Ruth Soledad, Maria Julieta , Lucia , Sonia
