A loan of $5,300 helped a member to buy cloth wholesale.

Litoral De Senkata Group's story

The credit group “Litoral de Senkata” will start its ninth cycle in the group Pro Mujer as part of the regional office in Senkata. It is made up of eight members and has a board of directors, of which Remedios is the president. The businesses that the members have include selling underwear, CDs, bed sheets and vests, in addition to a beauty salon.

This loan will benefit the small businesses such as the one Remedios has. She started with the group five years ago after a friend invited her to join. Currently, she has a business making sportswear. She learnt this trade because she used to work in a sewing business and learnt how to do it. For that reason, she decided to start her own business.

The loan she is asking for is to buy cloth wholesale which she will buy from the traders in the city and later sell in to order at educational institutions. This work allows her to generate an income to support her family; she is married and has five children.

When asked what she likes about Pro Mujer, she tells us that it is the health service that the institution offers.

In this group: Remedios, Celia , Antonia Olga, Camila Zaira, Jacqueline, Vicente Justo , Antonia, Nancy Filomena
