Union Nashis Con Ñeque Group's story

The “UNION NASHIS CON ÑEQUE” communal bank will start its third cycle in Pro Mujer as a part of the Los Andes center. It is made up of eight members and is led by a board of directors of which Monica is the president. The businesses that the members have in the group are varied. Among them are selling party items, making platforms, selling food, knitting sweaters, selling chickens, selling snacks, and a driving service.

The loan the micro-business women will take out will benefit them, including Mónica. She says that this is the second year she is in Pro Mujer. She joined at the invitation of a friend from the institution who went to visit her at her home. Right now, she has a clothes selling business. She says that she started this business several years ago on her own initiative when she saw the diversity of products she could put in her business.

The loan she will take out now is to increase capital by buying clothing wholesale. She will acquire it wholesale from stores in the city of El Alto and later sell it in her sales space. This type of work allows her to generate income to support her family, since she in single and in school.

When asked what she likes about Pro Mujer, she says that she likes the area of health the institution offers.
