A loan of $2,625 helped a member to buy wholesale beans and grapes.

Sol De Luna Group's story

The communal bank "SOL DE LUNA" is beginning its first Pro Mujer cycle at the social center in Alto Lima. The group is comprised of eight members and its board of directors is led by Eugenia, the president. The members are involved in different business activities, including: party events, stage builders, food sales, knitted sweaters, chicken sales, bookstore, sweets sales and transport services.

The loan they are requesting will benefit small business owners such as Eugenia who has been a member of Pro Mujer for a year now. She was invited to join by a colleague from the institution who visited her at home. Her current business is selling beans and grapes, which is a trade she learned from her mother who she used to help. After learning about sales she decided to set up her own business.

The loan she is requesting now is to increase her work capital to buy beans and grapes, wholesale, at the stores in the city of El Alto. She will then sell them at her stall. Her line of work allows her to generate an income to support her family since she is married and has three children.

When asked what she likes about Pro Mujer, she says it is the health area training provided by the institution.

In this group: Eugenia, Martha, Lilian Mariela, Paulina, Rosa, Carlota, Alejandra , Margarita Sandra
